Good luck! A night run would be fun!

Last weekend there was a run with the course going through a Home Depot store- yes THROUGH the Home Depot! LOL I didn't run it because I decided to run a 5k this week and on Aug. 11...and I can only run so many races. For one, the fees LOL And two, it takes alot more out of me than my usual runs.

This is very exciting. I just started running about 8 or 9 weeks ago, and each run I think about signing up and running my first 5k (I run 5k every other day). I get very excited just thinking about it. I think it is time to go for it. I live in the Midwest and don't want to run my first one in August, unless it is 6:00 am - too dang humid and hot. Good luck!! I'm so excited for you.

Good luck! That sounds awesome. I just signed up for my second one - October. Haven't run the first one yet - September... Isn't this fun?

Good luck to you! It sounds very nice with the Tiki torches. That is an extra bonus. My first run just had rain! emoticon

Hi Everyone! I started running about a month and a half ago. I just signed up to do my first 5K on August 18th and I'm very excited! It's a nighttime run with tiki torches lining the course. I can't wait.
