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!!
