Thanks for responding! I've tried C25K SEVERAL times, lol, but never completed it, so I'm familiar with it and will incorporate it in my walk/jog intervals. I have a full month and some days....so excited!!! My first priority is to get some goooood music.

I recommend joining the running training offered through SparkPeople or downloading Podrunner Intervals (www.podrunner.com) or Couch25K (www.c25k.com) to help you increase your stamina for running. All of these programs incorporate run/walk intervals that help you build your capacity to jog/run for extended periods of time/distances.

If you have a smart phone, the Run Keeper app is great for tracking your distance and time when running outside of the gym. Since most 5k events occur outside, you will want to get some days in where you run outside... trust me, its a different experience than the treadmill.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask the group or inbox me directly. I am excited for you!

My supervisor is an avid runner and heard from someone in the office that I jogged 1/2 mile last week without getting tired or stopping (HUGE deal for me). Welllll, I just agreed to sign up for a 5k Susan G Komen race. She has agreed to do whatever I choose, whether it be walk, walk/jog, or run. I'm not quite ready to run the whole thing, but I have set a goal for myself to jog at least 1 mile of the race. Wish me luck, I'm so excited!! Any pointers on training? Walking is a breeze, but I would really like to complete a full mile in this race.
