Welcome to the team! I think you should be able to do it. And even if worse case scenario is that you have to walk a little bit it will help you to get back into the feel of running in a race to help motivate you to keep working on your dream. You can do this!

Hello, I am happy to meet you all. My name is Andi and I am 51. I used to run quite a bit in High School, and was on the track and cross country teams ( as well as swimming) and I want to be able to run again.
I have had some success working with my trainer and I intend to build in that. I run slowly at this point, but look forward to being able to be faster. My one real question at this point is If I am starting now, is it reasonable to run 2 5k's in December, each a week apart?

Take Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my entire will, all that I have and possess. Thou hast given all to me. To Thee, O lord, I return it. All is Thine, dispose of it wholly according to Thy will. Give me Thy love and thy grace, for this is sufficient for me.
Ignatius Loyola
