"If you have been struggling to get your buns off the couch and somewhat in shape before the summer hits, training for a 5K is not a bad way to start. If you are looking for a program to help get you there, then the ‚ÄúCouch-to-5K‚ÄĚ running plan by CoolRunning is probably your best bet if you haven‚Äôt done an ounce of athletic activity for a number of years."
