If you can push pass the challenges you think you are having, I promise you will see and feel the results quickly.  We can come up with several reason why we can’t or won’t participate, so here are the reasons why you should connect with this easy great sport.

  1. Only a small amount of time is required to prepare for a 5K
  2. When you participate in this activity you will feel so good when you are done, like walking on the moon
  3. Your heart and lungs will become stronger than you ever imagined, you will never be out of breath climbing the steps.
  4. Signing up for local events, your entry fees always help a great cause.
  5. If you are trying to lose weight, this will do it! Inches will disappear in your waist, hips, and legs
