Today I run 8/10 KM three times a week. I start to run 4 month ago. The first time was very hard. I start with a circuit of 2 km, the first day that I went to the circuit I walked 4/5 of it, so I ran only  400 metros (LOL!). But I don´t give up. Step by step I improve the distance.

This year I have two goal:

  1. Run 15 KM by june.
  2. Run 20 KM at the final of the year.

If you are a runner what are your goals for this year?

If you are not a runner what are you waiting for?
