A little slow getting back here! Fitgers...You must be in Duluth? How'd Color Dash go? I know some people who did that one as well.

And yes, these races are terribly addicting. At least they promote healthy habits! :)

And Fefifo: The glory of a 5k is that it is a great place to start. You see people who walk super slow to the elite runners who are blazing fast. The pace doesn't matter. What matters is getting to the finish line run, walk or crawl.

I say do it. Runners are not judgemental. It's a very supportive and positive community. And it's a lot of fun.

I envy you. I want to do a 5K but as a beginning runner and being 69 years old I know I will have to walk as well a run, but still want to do it. I don't know what I am waiting for. We had a Gasparilla 5K in Tampa but didn't do it. Now it is so hot.....excuses, excuses, excuses. I do Zumba 5 times a week so I know I am able, but keep putting off the 5K.

Congrats with sticking with it and running in a cold, wet, and windy. All the things that would make most runners bag it.

Yeah they could become addictive.

No, I ran Fitgers 5K. I know a couple people who did the hot chocolate run too! My race was cold, wet, and windy. I finished in 41.13 which is pretty darn good for me :). My next run will be the color dash on the 18th these things could become a habit!!!

Enjoy! I read somewhere that the difference between a runner and a jogger is a bib pinned to the front of your shirt emoticon

If you're like most people I know, you'll quickly become addicted to these races. :) Hope you enjoyed it.

Congratulations! I am in Minnesota, too. And I had some friends running the Hot Chocolate 5k and 15k races. Did you do one of those? It looked like a fun one.

I'm in central NY, but I was lucky on all my 5Ks this winter despite some extremely frigid training runs. My January 5K was 40 and rainy. My February one was 30 and sunny. I don't really remember the weather for the December ones, so they must have been relatively warm. I did go out and run some days in the single digits but no races were that cold.

Good luck on your 5k! I ran my first 5k in January in Upstate NY and it was 18 degrees and no sun! Enjoy the moment and I am proud of you for doing it!

Good luck and have fun! I'll bet you never thought you'd be running in the snow in late April even if it's always a possibility. I definitely thought it would be warmer by now.

Let us know how it went when you're done. It took only one 5K to get me hooked. I hope you love it, too!
