'Couch to 5k' program benefiting Susan G. Komen of Lubbock

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Couch to 5K program is provided by Training Ground PES and $10 from each registration will benefit Susan G. Komen of Lubbock.

'Couch to 5K' is a 12 week program designed to help anyone get from the couch to completing 5 kilometers. Training is led by former Texas Tech track star, Leigh Cordes.

Registration is $20 and includes a weekly run schedule, a group run day every Saturday until the race, and a group run T-shirt. Training began Saturday, July 10th, and will continue every Saturday at the Monterey High School track at 8:30 a.m. until Race for the Cure on October 2nd.

Leigh Cordes, formerly Leigh Daniel, will provide weekly guidance for participants and distribute weekly workouts, building participants strength and endurance. You may remember Leigh from her marriage on NBC's "TODAY Throws A Wedding" to Nick Cordes last summer.

"Our goal with the Couch to 5K program, is to reach the Lubbock community, helping them achieve their fitness goals while bringing awareness to breast cancer. We'd love to cross the finish line with every participant at Race for the Cure," said Training Ground owner Tiffani Allamon.
