My Running Progress: From a couch potato to a marathon runner

This is how I progressed from a couch potato to a marathon runner. I can't even run a kilometer without panting and taking walk breaks when I first started, but now I can proudly say I can run 42 of them. The hardest thing to do is not the race itself but to believe you can do it. The next step is taking your first stride in training, from then on everything else will be 'easy'.
