Welcome Takingcontrol! Thank you for adding me as a friend! Your goal for becomming healthy is great! Unless you are a runner, training for a marathon seems like a huge feat! I trained for a 5K in college and it was hard. Set small goals - week 1 run 1 mile, week 3 run 1.5 miles. When I did mine, I also encorporated time since our group goal was to run 10 minute miles for the entire 5k.
Good luck and keep up the hard work! 2716 days ago
