Beginner's Running Plan - This plan pretty much details what I would advise people who find it difficult to start running after a long "off-period". Do short intervals or walking and running or jogging.
I honestly want to become a runner just so I can do the color run. I've never been a runner in all my life. Even when I was younger and actually in shape I couldn't run to save my life. But I SOOOO want to do the color run!
