Thank you for replying!
Over the years I have been involved with March of Dimes Walk (10K) and Breast Cancer Relays always have walked on those events (5K or 10K) I just walked the a 5K Making Strides for Breast Cancer last Saturday. I always feel so good when I do one of these type of walks for two reason I feel invigorated physically but I know in my heart I'm doing something good for others.
This time around after loosing some of my extra baggage and keeping active now for about a year I'm doing the 8 Week Rookie Running Training Program that is in SparkPeople, I'm on my 4th week of training and so far I'm doing better and better. I have 2 other Spark Friends that walk with me in our area and we do 4 miles every Saturday morning.
I was thinking to jog some of the way so they can see my posture and if there is anything I need to correct...(treadmill does not talk back to me) but I'm sure they will.
I have a 5K run in Nov 17th, the terrain is good and I think I can do it but it is my first ever run event and I just turn 60. I already have figure if I can't run the whole way I can do walk / run.
Again thank you! Good luck in your ventures and have fun!

I did one a few weeks ago. Had to walk up hills, but pretty much jogged the rest...very slowly! My goal is to run the distance one of these days.
