The people who know me best will tell you that I am quick to say the only way I would be caught running voluntarily is if I were being chased by a large ferocious animal. I have never really been one for exercise or sticking to a workout routine. Although I did participate dance all growing up (and loved it!) and played tennis in high school (and enjoyed it!), that doesn't make me overly athletic. My mom and I have distinct memories of one of our family trips where we were hiking up the side of mountain and I stopped, plopped down against the rocks and loudly repeated over and over, "I'm tired! I can't do this! I want to stop! My feet hurt! I'm just so tired!" It's not that I can't do it - I mean, I've worked out before - it's just that it's not fun and I don't like it. :)
Well dearest reader, I am here to ask for your advice: What program or app have you or someone you know used to get prepared to run a 5k?
Now that you have picked yourselves up off the floor...here's the reason I'm asking: Little Salem found a 5K fun run happening in December in Galveston that we have signed up for. It's the Santa Hustle! For registering we get a Santa shirt, beard and hat!! Plus their will be carols and candy!! And you best believe that Winston will be dressed up in some sort of outfit - whether that's a reindeer or an elf has yet to be decided! All of us are going to participate and even though I know that walking it is an option, I'd still like to give
running jogging a good effort.
So again: What program or app have you or someone you know used to get prepared to run a 5k?
