Ten Miler Training

The Charlottesville Track Club graciously provudes training for those of us who want to participate in the Charlottesville Ten Miler (held on April 1, 2006 next time). I am in program 1, meaning I have not run any discernible distance for a long time. Today we walk/ran 3/4 of a mile. I am very proud- one has to start somewhere. Mark (owner Ragged Mountain Running Shop) is hilarious, he talked a lot this morning (apparently that will not always be the case).
The real test will be Monday when I have to get up early and run by myself. I am looking for running partners (beginners) to assist with this project. I dont have to run/walk far but will the motivation be there? I really am happy right now because it feels so good to exercise, if only I could bottle this feeling to remind myself how good it feels to exercise.
Wish me luck!
