Is that your immediate response if someone asks you if you could run a 5K?
In fact, they’re going to show you how.
Over the next eight weeks, they will take you through a step-by-step training plan that they customized to get you – and anyone who wants to – running that 5K (3.1 miles). The eight-week training plan will start slow and gradually build in way that will allow you to succeed.
They invite you to take the challenge. To take that first step. To commit to taking it just one week at a time to reach your goal.
Yes, that’s right. They would love to see you run in the Healthy Heroes 5K at the end of the challenge on Saturday, Sept. 8, in Sioux Center. For more information and to register, visit www.AllSportCentral.com.
“Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try,” Van Ruler said. “I tell my patients and myself all the time that growth takes time.”
