I started doing a couch to 5k program. So far it's going really well. On top of that, I try to do one of the workout programs on my app, at least every few days. I am hoping to kick some butt at the Color Me Rad run by me in a few months . Any one else training? Any tips ? Thanks

Hey Chelsea, Couch to 5k programs are great! If you're at all interested in running, you should consider finding a training program. Group support is really helpful, especially with those long runs. We have one is MS called Marathon Makeover. I have to say the most accomplished I've ever felt was finishing my first (and second) marathon. Just doing halves for now, but beating a previous PR is very rewarding. My tips: get good gear (shoes, clothes, water bottle, gel/goo), find a support group, tell everyone (they'll help hold you accountable) and train train train!! Good luck to you!!

I'm doing the powerade challenge which get me to run 9k at the end of 2 months and on top of that I'm doing skimble workouts.
