This is my public declaration that I intend to run in the Bridge to Brisbane 10K event in two months. Yes, on 30 August I will join thousands of other runners who will race across the Gateway Bridge on their way to the EKKA showgrounds. My plan is to merely finish. I haven't done any serious running for eight years, and my 30-min jog today nearly wiped me out. But, I'm determined to shake myself out of this sedentary lifestyle before it kills me.

Last fall I decided to "run" the Kaiser-Permanente 3-mile run/walk that cuts through GSU campus. At least 100 GSU faculty, staff, students do this--and of course I'd do anything for a t-shirt. I trained (a bit), jogged the first mile, both calves locked up with cramps, I walked/limped through the last two miles, and decided that from now on I'm just going to buy t-shirts on ebay from the comfort of my sofa!

So I'm sure you'll finish; but if you finish AND ever run again, you'll be my hero.
