It's good to know I have that to look forward to! I have noticed it seems to get easier at the end and actually want to keep going, which is a new feeling for me. I'm still sticking with the program though so I can work on my stamina. I'll be happy work on my speed much later on; I'm super-slow but happy that I can last, lol!

Got through W4D2 last night, and actually ran during daylight! I'm not nearly as self-conscious about running in public a I used to be (I think I got over that last year), but I get a little nervous about overheating from the sun (I'm in the desert). It was pretty cool last night so it worked out well. And I took a couple of photos of the neighborhood during the walking portions, hope you guys don't mind me showing off my local scenery.
