When you do your initial 5K, you’ll be snared. I’m notice you… I’m running a marathon in a couple of months!


Everything you need is running shorts, shirt and shoes. I recommend not holding back on the shoes; great running shoes are truly incredible! Ladies will require a games bra.

On the off chance that you live in frosty climate, you’ll require some breathable garments to put over your shorts and shirt. You may even need socks for you hands!

Once more, with shoes, my recommendation is to go to a real running store, where the individuals who work there can watch you run and let you know what sort of shoe you require. On the other hand do your own particular exploration online and realize about it.
