For those of you who run, or have a strange fixation on those who do, take a look at my on and again running blog.
Presently, it is a complex story of a guy who decided it was more important to focus on prepping for a newborn than train for a marathon -- complex because he put on 5-8 pounds within a year, and now is starting over with, ahem, baby steps. I took too many months off, and I have the gut to prove it.
In other words, I'm out of shape and struggling. I've been here before and know how crummy the first few months will feel. I also know how good the few months following will feel if I stick with it.
