"I was anxious when I saw that 'Couch to 5K' was on the afternoon fitness schedule. After a few weeks, with patience and understanding from Beth, I was doing better than I thought I could ever do in the class. Jokingly, I said we should do a 5K.  And so we did. It was exciting, challenging, and fun. We plan on doing it again next year!!!"
