Start a program and stick to it is all I can suggest. If you did 10 sit ups on Monday...do 11 on Tuesday..12 on Wendsday..soon enough you will be kicken butt!
As for running that is about the same. Just puch yourself through the burn and focus on the result! You can do it!

Yep, as with any accomplishment, progressive overload.

Congrats on your decision. I went into the Army at 19 and thought it was a great life experience.
For your running (depending on your current level of fitness), you may find the following training plan helpful.

I'm glad you posted that Tracy. My sister has been trying to start a jogging program & hasn't been exercising any -- I'll send it to her. :)
