    Hi, I just found your blog today and I am so thankful! Sorry you were hacked and all the chaos it created for you. I tried to sign up for your newsletter, but I’m unable to do so. I keep getting a message that the feed isn’t set up to enable e-mail sign-ups. (something like that) So, if you can, could you please add me to your e-mail list for newsletters and updates? My e-mail is spowell9@gmail.com. Thank you and God bless, Sonia Powell

      Ho Sonia ~
      Thanks for your comments. It has been a stressful few months dealing with this. Still have a little work to do, desperately trying to get a backup of all my archived posts (a few years worth, ugh!). Anyhoooo, I fixed the email signup so you can try again. Thanks for the heads-up.
      Best Regards,
      Dr. Colleen

    Found you through google search of “Couch to 5K kids” – glad to have read it! We homeschool as well, so that was a bonus when I started reading your post. How old were your kids when they did the program? My son always says he wants to run with me, but I’m not sure when to let him start. He’ll be 6 in July, so I thought he might be ok with the couch to 5k program, maybe tweaked if need be. Anyway, thanks for the post, loved reading it :)

    Thanks for these positive thoughts. I am heading into the couch to 5k program and was wondering if it was okay for my healthy 3rd grader to run with me. I think it will definitely work now.

    You said you did this in just a few weeks. I’m overweight, have never run, and would like to get my son started with me because (although he loves it) he’s having a hard time with soccer because he doesn’t have stamina to keep up offensively. I can’t even say that I’m in walking condition. Suggestions?

      Hi Bianca!
      You can tweak the Couch to 5K program any way you like. You can do a lot more walking than the program recommends at first, if that’s what it takes. This is about the rest of your life… NOT the Couch to 5K program!! Make it your own – do what feels best and sustainable to YOU. The important thing is to become a “mover” for life. Not only does your “physical body” love it, but you brain DEMANDS it! Motion stimulates proprioception (movement neurology) that’s like the “go” switch for you brain! Don’t worry about staying 100% on track with the specifics of the program – just use it as an outline, if need be.
      Let me know if that helps, Bianca!
