Mailbox Running For Beginners!


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I never thought I'd be a runner, until I decided to do the mailbox running. Run from 1 mailbox to the next and walk the next 3 or 4 boxes. When you become comfortable add another mailbox and lessen a walk mailbox. Before you know it you will be running a 5K!!! emoticon

    That is a pretty good idea. I like it I think I will try it.

    I need to transition from the treadmill at the gym to "on the road" to prep for my first 5k. This sounds like a great way to transition.
