I know this year I want me and my daughter to participate in the Thin Mint Sprint and while I don't know the exact date yet, I feel I need to start preparing. I am research all the couch to 5K programs and podcasts out there. I haven't decided if I want to do it on the treadmill at the gym or by walking the neighborhood or a combination. My other uncertainty is whether to go on and have my 9 years old start it with me now or have her start it later on.
I am NOT a runner, never have been. I hated running in gym. You can ask my cousins since she was my PE teacher. I'm not sure why I want to try it, but there is just something about being able to say I've done a 5K that I like. I'd love to build up to a half marathon, but I'll wait and see how the 5K goes first.
So does anyone have any suggestions for podcasts or hunts for a beginner. Who else has taken this journey? What were your ups and downs?
