You can run a 5K. All you need is 30 minutes three to four times a week. Really.
You’ve taken the first step, by reading this book.
Perhaps you’ve already signed up for a 5K, and don’t have the faintest idea what that entails. Perhaps you’re setting a personal or professional goal, or you need to get fit for health reasons. Or perhaps, like many, you’re sick of being out of breath, tired, and generally feeling uninspired.
Much of running is mental, and as long as you keep putting one foot in front of the other, you will succeed in running a 5K.
