  4. I used to run 5Ks until my knee gave out. I would recommend steadily practicing distances slightly longer than the 5K, so it doesn’t seem like such a huge distance on race day.

  7. Not ready for this one, but hope to join in on the next one. I HAVE to get my butt up and start running. For months I have saying that, but the recent gain in my poundage now mandates it!
    Congrats! So proud of you!

  10. This looks like fun!! I am not a runner by any means but I would guess to start training off so you “feel the burn” instead of “can’t move your legs”. I love that you can bring your pets to the walk to join in the fun!

  11. I love your hashtag! This 5k sounds really awesome – and inexpensive too! When I’ve looked into doing runs in the past, it’s always CRAZY expensive which is sooo annoying to me. This one seems perfect. I can’t wait to hear how you’ve done in the race! Have a blast 🙂

  12. With bad knees and a bad back, I couldn’t run a 5K if my life depended on it so it’s always nice to live vicariously through someone else’s 5K run.

  13. That is awesome that you are doing a 5k. Too bad I am not in your neck of the woods to do it with you. I am newly registered for a 5k in October that is supporting breast cancer! It has motivated me to go out and run/walk 🙂
