Hi BGR sisters!
We all know we have to walk before we run. But, did you know walking is okay even in a run event. In fact, many people walk the entire 5K, 10K, half marathon, even marathon. Whether I participate in a 5K or a marathon, I train and complete the event with run one minute, walk one minute intervals from the start.
If you or someone you know is interested in walking the event, the important thing is to get a training plan and stick with it, same as if you are running the entire event. Here is one training plan with lots of additional helpful information: www.halhigdon.com/training/51134/Half-Mara
