Choosing the right 5K can be difficult, especially if you’re a novice. Luckily, MapMyRun has written an article that can help make that choice a bit easier.
Here is an excerpt:
“Running is simple: Put one foot in front of the other. Go as fast as you can, as long as you can. Boom — you’re running.
Yet, there are all kinds of reasons not to do it. Fear. Laziness. A lack of desire. Injuries, illness, not having a place to run to. And then there’s the biggest reason not to do it: You don’t have a concrete reason to do it.
I’ve struggled with this off and on over the past few years, ever since I started running with some regularity. I’ve never had any long-term purpose or goal, so I’ve been trapped in a yearslong cycle of making progress and then backsliding. So this year, I decided to create a humble goal for myself: run a 5K sometime within the first three months of 2018.”
