I've never done a 5K run. I would like to start running. Any ideas?

Just don't overdo it and hurt yourself! I know from experience it can be really hard to ease into a running program (I always try to progress too quickly and end up with shin splints). You might consider walking/running the 5k instead of flat-out running it. There are a lot of great training programs out there, especially in the SP Running Center.

I just signed up to run my first 5k in 3 weeks. I don't run, I usually walk on the treadmill or use the elliptical so I have my work cut out for me over the next 3 weeks. Any suggestions or tips?
