This girl can run!!!

I never thought I would ever see the day where I would become a runner. Because I was always fat, I HATED to run. I couldn't even run 1 minute without stoppin to catch my breath! 2 months ago, Hether my trainer from, started me on a training program to prepare me for the 5k that my church was hosting. The 5k is in support of the 2nd Harvest Food Bank. All proceeds are going to the food bank! HOW AWESOME! When I looked at the plan it was broken up into running intervals. I had never heard of this before. The plan is the Couch to 5k program. I recommend this program to anyone who wants to start running! Hether and I went running a couple weeks ago and she kept telling me how proud she was of me. She was like you really are a runner, you have perfect form and everything! ME A RUNNER! Who would have thought that a former 250 pounder would be running today! I had asthma growing up and would always need my inhaler and sometimes breathing machine before, during and after running and any type of exercise. I haven't used my inhaler or breathing machine in almost a year and a half. I am proud to say that I LOVE running! In honor of running my first 5k tomorrow, I thought I would share the play list I came up with. I listen to all kinds of music so theres a little of everything in there!
