Running- Are 5K's a New Fad


Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/17/2013 -- It seems like there is a different 5K run/walk every weekend to participate in. Every charity or group that needs to fundraise organizes one. Apparently running a 5K is the new “cool” thing to do.

Fueled by popular smartphone apps aimed at new runners, like the C25K apps- Couch to 5K and apps that simulate being chased by zombies, running can even seem fun. The Couch to 5K program has gained significant popularity with new runners, as it gives runners the guidance to run a 5K by the end of the 3 months- give or take some time depending on the runners ability level.

Some critics wonder if 5K’s are a fad. Or maybe not. With the obesity epidemic being at the forefront of a lot of discussions more and more people may also just be trying to get healthier as well.

Expert Brand has all the performance apparel to make running or walking a pleasant activity. The website has a great selection and is easy to shop.
