Hey everyone! I am going to start losing weight and getting into shape.. My goal is to run the Tinkerbell half in Jan.. I know I need to loose about 60lbs.. My current activity level is couch potato, mom taxi driver.. I have no clue where to start any advice is greatly appreciated

Welcome! Start by making small goals like jogging for 5 minutes then slowly work up to longer distances. There is a great training program by Jeff Galloway on the runDisney website. I used that to train for my first half and now I've done 9 half marathons. Good luck with your training! Keep us posted on your progress ✨ - PirateQueenBriezy  330.9 #743 9:11AM
good luck. I tip my hats off to runners. Even when I was in shape and serving our country as a Marine, I couldn't run to save my life. - GoofyMom77  904.1 #203 4:18PM
Good for you. Set reasonable and achievable goals. Best of luck on your journey. Keep us posted. - Mrs.mouse  543.6 #377 10:45PM
Hi there! I think I said this on your post that was in the Hub the other night, but a lot of people start running with the Couch to 5K program, and then pick up the half marathon training from there. Good luck! Remember to set goals, stick to a reasonable plan, and feed your body well: if you're going to run, your body needs fuel! A lot of people try to cut their calories way low and end up burning out because they don't have the energy to keep training. Eat healthily and fuel your runs! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 9:42AM
