Publisher's Summary

This audiobook is not for avid runners, or those who win 5K races and just want to get better. This audiobook is for people who either want to run their first 5K (or first in a while) or those who just want to get into 5K shape. I'm writing this for the folks that don't run, or may never have ran in the past.

Fantastic book for beginners

Any additional comments?

Fantastic book and very realistic about the process of running a 5k and beginning to run in general. The tone was very down to earth and relatable to most non seasoned runners who are looking for good information about the process involved in running a 5k. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking to get into running.

Easy Listening and Informative

If you could sum up Surviving a 5K Race in three words, what would they be?

This book is great for anyone who is wanting to get into running or needing instruction towards a reason to start running. If you have run a 5K in the past but stopped running this book also has some great information for you as well.

Any additional comments?

Many people say they want to start running. Maybe its to get in better shape. Perhaps its just something for you to do to be active. In any case, one of the biggest struggles is sticking with your new activity that pushes you to levels you are not always comfortable. Setting a goal to run a race such as a 5K and then training for it helps you have motivation to stick with it. Training the proper way allows you to stay healthy while reaching your goal. This audio book provides clear instruction and insight on ways to prepare for your first race ever or your first race in some time.
