That's it. I'm going to start running tomorrow. Currently the gym is the furthest place I drive to, and last night I spent $46 filling up my rather small Pontiac Sunfire. I don't want to cut the gym out entirely. But seeing as I hate step, I might cut that out a little. I'm not exactly a fan of running either, but I can pick my own music and I like the idea of running better than I like the idea of doing step.

I've heard a lot of good things about this site, so I might try and follow that plan. I'm not so much a beginner in the gym anymore, but I am definitely a beginner as far as running. I don't know why, but I feel like I'd be winded running down the block, which is probably fifty yards away.

I'm currently trying to figure out how people manage to coordinate carrying water and an ipod and figuring out how far they are going. I guess I need a watch.

So maybe I'll log my distance/times here.

If you've got a good place to run, I'd say go for it! Just go easy at first, which it sounds like you plan to. I think a walk/run program is a good way to start.

(I haven't figured out the water thing very well myself--but last summer I was seeing lots of folks with these doofy looking waist packs lined with small bottles--I think if enough people start wearing them, they'll start to look less silly).
