Update on my newbie runners...

Some of you guys might have seen my post about a month ago...I started a running group at school as a New Year's challenge, aiming for a 5 k at the end of March. I gave them plans and training journals and a big pep talk. I send them articles to read and encouragement.....

Then two days later I was struck with tendonitis and PFS in my right knee, and I have not been able to run. Grhhhhh. I had to put up with a whole month of bright, enthusiatic, endorphin filled newbie runner, coming to my room every day to tell the injured great they feel...and how great they are doing...

Well all sarcasm aside...They are doing great. Four of the eight have gone out of their way to thank me for giving them the push. They are dropping weight and feeling great.

So even though I have been sidelined, I was able to do a good thing. I really feel like I was able to give back a little bit.

We are planning on running a race together in May that raises money for our track team. I should be good to go by then.

Run on friends.....
