Exercise! Ugh.....

I have come to realize that I have a Love/Hate relationship with the gym. Plain and simple.... I love to hate it. I really want to be one of those people who love to go to the gym and can stay there for hours but, alas, I am not that person. I can and do find any excuse not to go to the gym. So making the goal to exercise this year is a difficult one for me... but I am committed!
Last night as I started the "training" to run a 5k, I thought to myself...... "You must be crazy! You are so out of shape. Who makes this kind of a goal....certainly not you!"
But you know what, I did it. I lasted for 30 minutes on the treadmill and then I went to the track to do a cool down with Scott (who by the way is quite motivated to go to the gym lately..... what is wrong with the universe??) I know it's not the greatest of accomplishments but for me, it was something.
