Found this, like this…

Melanie at upinthecosmos and Angela at adayinthelifeof ang and Debby at debsdailylife and Pam at Emptynest  and CoLey Loree at cupcakestocardio and Jo at awellkeptlife are all my running partners for this year (anyone else want to join us?).
I found this cool quote and wanted to share with you all. I am proud of you all for joining me on this quest to just see what we can do in 2012.
"If you run, you are a runner. It doesn't matter how fast or how far. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run."

Take care my friends. Run safe and be sure to listen to your body. When you body tells you to rest, listen to it. Remember to always stretch. You’ll all do amazing, I know you will.
Blessings!!

Yes. What do I have to do? Set a goal? Start running? Report to you? Set up a ticker?

I hate running on the treadmill so I'm putting running on the back burner until the ice goes away outside. I'll still walk on the treadmill and have been doing eliptical and the bike at the gym. Running will commence in April hopefully. :-)

I hope to return to running.. I have never been great at it, but I also have never given it a fair shake.

That's awesome! I'm going to copy it down and put it on my bathroom mirror! Thanks for sharing it!

I wish I could join you but my doctors won't let me do any kind of high impact exercise and running is definitely high impact. That's what makes it so hard for me to lose weight because I am so limited on what exercises I can do. Good luck to you.

I'll be running with you just as soon as junior makes his appearance in March, until then I'm more of the waddler bringing up the rear.

I would like to join your challenge but don't know how my foot will hold up! Have you read any of John's, The Penquin, books? They are great and very motivational. I have one of his coffee cups with his quote: "The miracle isn't that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start."

Love it!

Blessings my friend,
Shawn
