Couch-to-5K: Week "who even knows anymore?"

I can't believe it! I just can't believe it!

I ran for a total of 15 min straight today! "Oh Mylanta!!!" (If you grew up in the eighties, can you guess what popular TV show character said that all the time?)

That is over 1 mile!!!

Does that qualify me as a "runner" now?

Now I've just got to get it up to 3 by spring. 5K, here I come.

Here is a video I posted about it.

How funny. I ask the same question! Am i a runner yet???? When would my husband introduce me as ' my wife , the runner' ??? I don't know ...... i feel more and more like a runner all the time. I guess you'll just KNOW... I think your a runner. I think as long as you keep putting one foot in front of the other your a runner. But its you thats gotta FEEL like a runner. Do you?? Deb

Thanks, jinxxxygirl.

I feel like I'm really close to being a "runner."

I think once I truly love running & crave it, then maybe I can call myself a runner. I'm almost there, though. I'm actually really starting to enjoy it. Maybe, though, it isn't so much the running but the victories I'm seeing that I'm loving. Either way though, I'm beginning to have a good time at it. :)
