  • Try the Couch to 5k program at coolrunning.com. Get yourself a good pair of running shoes and get

  • Just start! Set a goal of maybe a quarter mile at first and move up as you feel ready. Also, invest in a good pair of shoes!

  • After 2-3 weeks of doing an hour on the treadmil at the steepest level at the speed of 3.3 I was ready to run/jog. I suggest building on the treadmil at the fastest walking speed and then get into the jogging after that(you will know when you are ready!). Good luck and enjoy!!!!
