Yeah!!! I ran 9km yesterday.

I am supposed to run an 8km race in Ottawa next weekend and am doing the 5km army run on the 20th.
Can't wait!

Ack, you're crazy! I've never liked running, I used to fake asthma attacks in high school to get out of it.

Did it take long to work yourself up to 9k? I can't even do 3mins on an elliptical. I would like to get something going after the baby is born though.

Running SUUUUCKS at first. I was terrible. I started with 1km and added distance once I felt like that 1km wouldn't kill me. lol
I started in April and have been running steadily since. It took a lot of will power to not give up in the first month when I wasn't covering much distance. Once I got up to 3.5 km I was liking it a lot more. :)
