I started the C25K in Aug and finished the second week of Oct. I moved on to a 1/2 marathon training program. I'm using the run/walk program in the Marathon for Mortals book but there are a lot of options out there. I'm on track to do the Disney 1/2 marathon in January. I was never really a runner before this so if I can do it I don't see any reason that you can't. Disney has a pretty forgiving 16 min/mile cut off so I think it is a good choice for a first race or for slower runers or run/walkers. To answer a quesion from another one of your posts "w6d2" means week 6 day 2 of the C25K program. Just getting started is the hardest part. You really don't have to have an app or a Nike + or anything. All you really need is a decent pair of running shoes and you are ready to go. You can always pick up those little bells and whistles later if you find that they will be helpful for you. Best of luck with your training.
