My Fiancee and I are trying to get in shape for our wedding in May 2010. We’ve never participated in any kind of run. But, we found out about Team Challenge a  half marathon training program and fundraiser by the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation for the Rock n Roll Marathon in Vegas. The training program is for all levels which is great for me because I don’t know the first thing about training or running. My fiancee has actually been battling Crohn’s for the last 5 years and so we decided to participate! We are so excited!!! The training program begins at the end of this month. In the meantime we are doing the Couch to 5K program. Just completed week 1…Yeah! Give me a shout if anyone has worked with Team Challenge or is running the Rock n Roll Marathon in Vegas!

I’m running the VA Beach Rock and Roll half marathon in Sept.  I’m getting in fantastic shape, I’ve not run like this since track and field.

Also, d’Orsay, to track my mileage I plan out routes using google earth, or there are websites out there like mapmyrun or gmaps pedometer.  Some people use fancy GPS watches to track their run, but they are expensive.
