While I was a little nervous I just sort of approached it as just another run..I knew I wouldn't place in the top 3 of my age group so no pressure to try to win a medal. I just wanted to do it to see what my time would be. I actually finished 8 seconds faster than I had hoped I would finish. Just keep it slow and easy and everything else should fall into place. Just remember..don't start out too fast..save your rocket fuel for later. HAVE FUN!!

Hi, everyone. I was on SP for several months last year and then life got crazy busy! I started walk/running last August through October and started up again in May. (I have a hip that does not tolerate running on a treadmill, so did not run in the winter months - too cold in Wisconsin for my lungs!) I am planning to do my first 5K in a couple of weeks. I've never done an organized run/race before and am excited/nervous! My training has been slow and easy because of my hip, but I did 2.65 miles yesterday, so I think the distance will not be a problem. I am here just to gain some knowledge from those more experience in this! emoticon
