The goal of this beginner-level program is to get you from a couch potato to a runner! This program is designed to help you transform your sedentary lifestyle into an active one and incorporate running into your daily life. Though designed for beginners, we certainly welcome more experienced runners who are looking for some structure. The plan's manageable expectations makes it a great fit for anyone and its structure allows for early success.
