Couch to 5K Success!

Throughout the summer, I run several 'Couch to 5K' Programs.  I received a wonderful testimonial from a participant in Littleton who I trained this past summer:

I have never been much of a runner.  Last summer I started running and attempted my first 5K.  It was not a positive experience and therefore did not continue with running regularly.  This year, when the opportunity to train for a 5K came up, I decided to try again since I had started to get more in shape this year through strength training.  I found this Couch to 5K program to easy to start and I felt successful in completing the weekly routines.  By the end of the summer, I was able to run for 30+ minutes at a faster speed.  I completed the 5K at the end of the program and beat my last years time by 3:00! I felt the training, support, and encouragement that I got from the trainer, Paul Connolly, was helpful and necessary in me achieving my goal.  I now have the goal to run either the Falmouth Road Race next summer or the Boston Half Marathon.  Thanks, Paul!!
