I started running in August 2016. It was a struggle for me at first to run even just one mile. I kept running and eventually started being able to run much further and much longer. I entered a few 5k races. This year (2017) I will run in at least 15 races. This includes 5ks (3.1 miles), 10ks (6.2 miles), half marathons (13.1 miles), and even one full marathon (26.2 miles)!
