Catch the Wave

A couple of years ago, I asked a friend to teach me how to run. She was an avid runner and she readily agreed. We worked on it for a couple months but I made slow progress. She ended up moving suddenly and all of my motivation went out the window.

In my town there is the Lake Run club. They have a class/training program for new runners called Catch the Wave. I recently decided to join that even though I was joining late by 2 weeks. Last Wed I ran with the group for the first time in 27 degree weather. (Yuck!) I was in the slowest group but in the middle of that group. The slow group was a long snake. It was fun to run with a group of people.

So, I am working my way to running a 4 something miles in May. Please ask me how I'm doing at it! I need the encouragement.

What can I encourage you on?

"Catch the Wave" was the motto at the school my son attended in Grade 7 & 8. His valedictorian speech was all about "catching the wave".

Way to go Amy! Keep it up! I'm not a runner, but I do try and exercise 5 days a week. Right now with my days spent at the hospital, I come home exhausted and I'm not getting the exercise I need. I DO walk up all flights of 7 stairs at the hospital to do something, but the scales are telling me that's not enough. Gotta make time for more of a work out when I arrive home at night.

I'm impressed my friend,
