Anyone can run or walk a 5K. Half the battle is saying you will do it. If you're on the fence, please read this article I wrote for Experience Life Magazine: Yes, You Can Do a 5K.
A goal, such as finishing a 5K, can become a training partner of sorts. The goal is what gets you out of bed in the morning to train and helps you stick to your training schedule when you consider skipping a workout. A goal will help you keep putting one foot in front of the other, when you consider cutting your workout short. The thought of accomplishing your goal will keep you company the whole way.
The best part about a goal though? The goal is really a disguise for good habits. Once the goal is completed you're left with a mind and body that knows how to go forth and be active on a regular basis. That's the real accomplishment.
