Anyone interested in doing the 5K Run/Walk in December? I'm not much of a runner but I like the idea of training and working toward a big event.

For more info you can google T-Mobile Samsung Shoe4Africa 5K.

This is part of my "change your life" insteading of dieting mentality.

Hi there! I started doing the Couch to 5K program when I started Jenny (there are a ton of great apps) and have loved it. It keeps you really motivated to feel the progress each time the runs get a little bit harder.

I was hoping to try the Central Park 5K in October, but my doctor advised me to slow down with the program as I had given myself shin splints. (It's not great to go from a low fitness to suddenly intense active lifestyle, and running for overweight people can be hard on the joints...I also have flat feet so it makes it worse!) So anyway, I may have to postpone my 5k to November or December.

Would love to follow along with you and anyone else here! Good luck :)
