On March 9th I've signed up for two 5Ks at the Senior Games, the running Road Race at 8:30am and then a walking 5K at 10am. In 2011 I ran my first 5K (31:17) at the Senior Games and placed third in my age group. Last year I placed second in the 5K Road Race (30:23) and second in the walking 5K (38:17). I want to do well this year.
My nephew has committed to run-walk-run a 5K every month this year. He did the Hope for Haiti 5K with his sister in 47 minutes and seconds and then February 1st I paced him in the Rotary Twilight 5K finishing in 45 minutes and some seconds. Since he's only 28 years old he can't run in Senior Games, so he was looking for a local 5K for March. The Shamrock Run, Walk, and Jog with Your Dog in Winter Haven has several events including some with no dog required. At 1pm there is a 5K about half an hour away from the Senior Games in Bartow. I haven't signed up yet, but I'm thinking I may pace him for that event, too.
So basically that means I'd race a running 5K, a walking 5K, and then jog/walk a 5K. Yeah. I think I can do that!!
