Thanks for the responses. Definitely had Monday morning brain this morning. The races are on the same weekend, so I will definitely not be running both of them!

It would be fine if you're not planning on racing the 10K all out.

One option might be to sign up for the 10 K, but allow yourself the freedom to walk quarter, half or all of it if needed. At least that way you can participate. I sure hope you have rest days planned after the 13 mile and 10 K fun runs!

Can you sign up after the 1/2, once you know how you feel? I wouldn't put too much pressure on yourself to run it, and I defintely wouldn't race it, but if you're feeling good and have the energy for it, I think it would be okay.

I'll be running my first 1/2 marathon on April 6th. Would it be unwise of me to sign up for a 10k for the following weekend? My longest running distance to date is 8 miles, so I'm not sure how I will feel after 13.1.
