Learn to Run - 5K
Learn to Run - 5K is an introductory course on running. Of course we all know how to run - just put one foot in front of the other quickly! But how do you "become a runner". This course will help you set up the habits, routines, mental resources and basic running knowledge 101 to help you to enjoy a consistent, enjoyable running routine (rather than just running when you need to catch the bus). Coach Seanna will write you a personalized program and will check in weekly to see how you're progressing. You will have access to her for any questions or support you need along the way. Let's do this!
