Chubby Runner-Vol. 1

So I am training (that term is used VERY liberally) to run in a 13 mile mini-marathon this Spring.  I going to chronicle my progress through the blog. 

Now, I am not a runner.  My brother, God love his little runnin’ heart, inspired me to give this a go.  He assures me on a regular basis that I can do this.  

I imagine that when I run this race I will look something like this….

We shall see.

So yesterday the weather in Kentucky was quite warm for this time of year and I went for a 2 mile walk.  Feeling quite motivated, I decided to jog about 1/2 mile. 

As you may remember from this post, I walk on a busy street, and people can see me easily.  So, in the middle of my jog, which was taxing (because my physique is, how shall I say, less than athletic?) a car pulls over in front of me. 

This kind lady stops, rolls down her window, and asks….
”Ma’am, are you ok?”

Apparently when I jog I look something like this….

image Oh well………..
