Hi, welcome. I'm pretty new too. I recently started running, and find that I love it! I am up to running for 16min. out of my 40 min. treadmill workout. When I started I couldn't evedn run for a whole min. Good luck with your goals!
Congrats on making the commitment to do your first 5K and 10K, what a great way to celebrate your SparkPeople anniversary. :)
The only thing that matters is crossing the finish line. The more you train, the stronger you'll become. Please keep us updated on your progress, and we'll be waiting for your race reports.

My name is Kathi and I've been running for about 6 months. I am registered for my first 5K on 5/01 and I have a 10K scheduled for 6/12. The 10K is actually a celebration of one year with SparkPeople and that goal is simply participation (even if half of it is walking) to honor the great things I've accomplished this year!
I was laying in bed this morning deciding where I was going to run today and it occurred to me that I'm not on any running teams. As I looked at this team, I picked up a couple of good tips already and knew that this was the right team for me!
I'm always amazed that I run. My last two blogs are about getting ready for the 10K and the desire to run that is stronger than any temptation to stay home. It's a great life!!
