You should be able to walk 30-60 minutes at a brisk pace, a few times a week, and be doing that for several months before starting to run.

I second the suggestion to go with either a Sparkpeople training program or the Couch to 5K program. I went from struggling to run 60 seconds less than a year ago to training for a half-marathon now. I also agree that you should walk before you try running and you need good shoes!

How long are you walking? Before you can run, you must be a regular walker. :) I used SP's walking 5k training program to walk my first 5k and now I'm training to run one. It's been a hard battle, but I'm getting there.

Big tip: SHOES! GEt properly fitted for running shoes. All shoes are not created alike!

I am not a runner at all. I want to start. My 8 yr old daughter ran a 5k this weekend and I want to start running with her. I can barely run 10 steps so I need to start slow and small. Help. Any tips or websites.. Thanks
