Couch to 5K Program

Have you ever thought....... I wish I could run the Bulldog Dash 5K..... but I know I can’t... I can’t even run 2 blocks without being out of breath...      WELL.... The Bulldog Dash committee would like to encourage YOU to challenge YOURSELF to complete this feat this year!  We are making available for your access a 9 week “Couch to 5K” training program by www.coolrunning.com.  This training program has been implemented by other 5K events and has been well received.  As you will notice in the program, you are not required to be an “avid” runner in order to achieve the final result, but more so a person who would like to become more physically active.  You can  access the program on the school’s website by going to www.germantownbulldogs.org then click on Bulldog Dash.  

We hope you will consider the challenge to complete the “Couch to 5K” program with your final reward being a victory run at the 2012 Bulldog Dash 5K.  Challenge a friend to train with you for some additional support.  If you decide to take on the challenge, you will need to start the program on March 18th.

Put you best paw forward!!!
