Rec program helped turn ‘couch potatoes’ into 5K runners

To the Editor,I want to thank Tecumseh Parks and Recreation for offering the Couch to 5K (C25K) Training Program this spring and hosting the Tecumseh Fun Run on June 9. Special thanks to Kristie, Deena, and John for volunteering their time once a week to train us. I also want to congratulate all the C25K runners. We did it! I think the majority of us that registered for the C25K Program had our doubts. Who would have thought that you could take couch potatoes and turn them into 5K runners. I remember struggling to run for 30 seconds the first week and never thought it was possible to run for 30 minutes. It’s a truly rewarding experience and I am grateful to all of you for the encouragement you provided to make it possible for all of us. I can’t wait for my next 5K.Cindy MurphyTecumseh
