Turn Your Walk into a Run

Road Races: An Achievable Goal

After working on running for four to five months, you may want to try a road race, such as a 5K (3.1 miles). Finishing a race is another doable goal and a way to prove your success in turning a walk into a run. According to Galloway, who champions the idea of "walk breaks" during long runs, says "Community races are fun, energizing, and motivate one to get out there."
