Couchin' No More

Submitted by Andy on Fri, 04/09/2010 - 21:41

Yesterday I posted to my Tvitter a run I did with RunKeeper, which is a ridiculously fantastic iPhone app for collecting all sorts of data while you run. I am admittedly very narcissistic about data concerning myself (last.fm, Foursquare, what have you), but I usually know better than to think this sort of info is of any interest to anyone else.

I try to keep this blog/webspace more what I'm writing than what sandwich I'm eating right now. But this particular run signified the conclusion of the Couch to 5K program, a program I've started twice before and finally completed this time. So I'm a little proud of this one. I'm hoping to run the RiverRun in a couple weeks, which will be my first road race since I was twelve.

Hey Andy!

Great run and congrats on finishing couch to 5k! I know a few people that have done that program and are now onto completing a half-marathon.

I totally think you should do the RiverRun. I've recently become more of an outside runner due to many running friends, and I think you'll be amazed at how a race can motivate you. So I say, "go register!"

Lastly, since you seem as into the whole social media realm as I am, you may like DailyMile. It's a social site for posting work-outs, finding races, finding running friends, etc. Here in MKE we have a pretty supportive network of great peeps and you may find the same for where you live. If you decide to check it out, don't hesitate to find me.
