Hey everyone, just wanted to introduce myself and ask a question.
I am new to Spark People even though I signed up last summer. My co-worker recommended it and although I wasn't ready when I first signed up, I am really enjoying it now. I am a teacher so I have summers off and I have been feeling unhealthy lately both physically and mentally, so I made a promise to myself this summer to end bad habits and start new ones! As part of my 'change of habits' plan, I decided to train for a 5K. I've ran in the past but never seriously or very well. In fact, running helped me to find out that I have a slight bit of asthma! So with medication, running has been a lot more doable for me.
So...here's my question. I am training for my first 5K and wondering if there is any advice you could give me about training or running the race. Perhaps something you wish you knew before/during running your first race?
