I have been using the Couch to 10k app on my phone:
So far so good :) I have even been running a little more than it says so hopefully I can be ready in less than 14 weeks.
I found this awesome 5k in New York that I would also love to do called The Color Run
Here is the run down ... It is a 5k for any level ... runner or walker ... young or not so young. Everyone starts off the run in a white t-shirt and at each kilometer a different color is thrown from the crowd.
Don't worry it is not paint. It is a "magical color dust" that is 100% natural and safe.
Anyone interested in running this with me? The New York race is on August 25th and registration starts February 1st.
Let's Run Peeps!!!
