So I did my very first 5k in June and I loved it!! I was scared at first and then I got worried but then I was well you are already here and the only way back is to do it... so I did it. I had to walk the first 1/2 mile because of all the people. I couldn't get around them or through them on my bike and the last 1/4 mile of I walked. Hubs didn't get to do it with me but he was there at the finish line with the camera. I did it in 42 minutes. I am already looking forward to doing it again next year and maybe hopefully find a couple of more for me to do. I was scared that I wouldn't be ok or be ok doing it by myself but I was and I am and I want to do it again and do more of them.

    ISTRALOUISE the one I did they gave you the option of getting sponsors or self sponsoring or just doing it. They did prefer that you have some kind of sponsor. I too am shy so I didn't go asking everyone to sponsor. I just wanted to be a part of it and to prove to myself that I could do it. If you are interested in doing them, check them out and get as much information as you can. Some of them have e mails or web sites you can get questions answered. Don't feel that you have to have a lot of sponsors or donations because you don't.

    Did you have to fundraise any? That's always been a big stopping point for me, as I'm shy and can't handle the cold calling (most of my friends don't have much they could donate).
