Been thinking about this myself....

Definitely do this!

I think I'm going to do this with the money I'll be earning from my PT job.

Curious...where's your part time job?

Curious as well... p/t sous chef?

I'm going to be a WeightWatcher's leader. :)

Perfect job for you!!

My point is that "busy" is often an excuse. "I'm too busy to run" usually means "I've chosen not to make running a priority".

Which is fine. There's nothing at all wrong with not making running a priority - just be conscious of the decision.

This. I personally have chosen right now not to focus on running. This is partly because of an ongoing injury but also partly because I am enjoying other things in life right now. I don't admire people who run marathons while having a full time job any more or less than I admire people who do other things. I guess I just figure that everyone has their own priorities and experiences and who am I to judge or praise anyone else.
