5K Success Tips
Do this before you commit to doing a 5K .... You'll thank me in the end.
***As most of you know, I am not a big fan of running (for me or my clients), but I do know the popularity is growing and I wanted to throw out 5 rewards of running. I want to emphasize that running is a good activity if you like it and you don't have any conditions that make it contraindicated. If you don't like running or do have a condition that really limits your ability, don't feel bad and think you can't lose weight without running. Enjoy the article, but remember H.I.T. offers you great results, in less time, without the injury risks. ******Troy
