Check out our most recent success story from Laura from Reston, Virginia.
Hello! I am another success story! At least a success story in progress - very slow, but steady progress. I came across your website about 18 months ago. I was walking almost every day, and hit a plateau. But I hated running so what was I do to? I looked at lots of websites about how to start running, and they all had one thing in common - to start running you had to already be able to run a mile, run for 20 minutes, etc. Seriously? If I could do those things I would already be running! I couldn't run 1/2 a block or even 20 seconds! It was very discouraging. In frustration, I googled "I hate running" and your website popped up. I read through it and thought "Well, I can do this - I can run for 5 seconds or 10 seconds or 10 paces." So that is what I did. The first time out, I ran for a total of 45 seconds in 15 second bursts, during a 30 minute walk. A humble start, but a start. Now, 18 months later, I am up to 4 miles of running. I'm not fast, but I'm running. I have done 2 5k's and will run another one in a couple of weeks. I can't say I love running, but I love feeling better, looking better and the feeling of accomplishment I have every time I finish a run. My friends are astonished! And I sing the praises of your website. Thank you for giving me a way to be successful! There may even be a 10k in my future - or maybe a half marathon - who knows?
