I'm strongly considering registering for the BAA medley next week. It's a 5k in April, 10k in June, and Half Marathon in October.

The 5k and 10k are definitely doable - it's the Half that has me concerned. I guess I'll have 9 months to figure it out!

I didn't sign up yet, but I plan on doing the Seaside Heights 5K on the boardwalk in October. This is as long as I enjoy this whole running thing. :-)

Not as of right now, but I will register for two after Sunday.

The first one is "Oktobrewfest" on Oct 10th and it is a 4 mile race. The second is "Apple Hill Harvest Run" on Nov 2nd and it is a 8.5 mile race.

Have fun with the color run SMAC. I haven't done it yet, but it's on my to-do list.

Our local YMCA is sponsoring a 5K on May 16th, and it is right here in town, so what better opportunity for our first 5K! We signed up right away, so as not to chicken out! We have nine weeks to prepare. We being my husband and I. We are both 56 years old and this will be our first 5K at this stage of life! We did a few back in the day, but more to support a cause than to compete. Not that we will be competing with anyone this time either! Our only competition will be within ourselves and getting to the finish line!

to benefit the Ellsworth Public Library: www.ellsworth.lib.me.us/
renovation and expansion project.

Anyone is welcome to join us! Look for Maine Sparklers for the team name on the registration site.

It will be my second 5k. I did the first one a few years back also with SparkMaine team, it was the Susan Koman 5k held in Bangor Maine. I walked that one, I hope to do a bit better with this one.

I've signed up for the Race for Life 5k in Penzance, UK on 27th May. I ran my first 5k two years' ago (after doing Spark's C25K programme) - last year I walked the race with some other people, this year I want to do it for myself - running! I don't regularly run.

Haven't signed up yet but I'm eyeing two races. Colour Me Purple 5K (March 22) for Honouring Women's Month (purple colour run!) and the DG 5K (Deputy Governor) (April 27th) which will be giving money to the Special Olympics, last year it was for Hospice Care.

Tomorrow night is a Beach Walk for the Breast Cancer Foundation.

I walked (past the running age) my 5k virtual race. It took me 140 minutes walked on treadmill 2oing 15 mph to 2.8 mph. I played my radio and walked watching my beachwalk on the lucia islands. Which was nice.

Registration hasn't started yet for my "goal race" - Downtown Christmas 5K Run ... but as soon as it does I'll be signing up! I'm taking my C25K program a little slower than the guideline, I figure it will probably take me a full 12 weeks to accomplish it. After all, I'm 49 and have never run before in my life ... I don't want to overdo it & injure myself or burn out.

I will complete week 1 of the Rookie Running Program today so I am hoping to be in good shape by the time of the 5K. I know I will have no problem walking 5k but really want to run it and cross this off my bucket list :)

I just signed up for my first ever 5K in November. Still a LONG ways away. It is the American Heart Association's Heart Walk. I am the team leader of my team Vincent's Heart.

I am walking for my son who was born with a congenital heart defect, so the AHA has my full support with this Heart Walk. Originally I was just going to sign up and do it, but then I found out I could train for it before hand and jumped in here.

I signed up for a Blacklight Run. The run is at night in July -- which is a pretty warm time of year here in Houston. It looked like a lot of fun, and it's about 12 weeks outs, so I have plenty of time to train. I'm only on week 1. Now I have a goal and I won't quit -- I paid money!

I've signed up for the Alaska Heart Run in April, my friends want me to join them in a triathlon (just doing the running part) in March and I've also joined a mud run in JUNE (that one I am really scared about)! I've decided to start slowly with this 8 week 5k training plan mixed in with my 2 days of Zumba and 1 day of volleyball. After the Heart Run I will start training for an 8K so that I'll be able to handle the obstacles in the Mud Run! I need to remember to add strength in there! Message me if you have tips on how to remember to do strength or if you have exercises that would be good to prepare me for a 5k mud run! I'm just starting small and building from there...

Hi NEWLIFE0502!

Congratulations on starting the program.

As for signing up for a 5K, the chart for the program shows that W8D3 is a 5K. I am no expert, but it certainly seems reasonable to do a 5K by Week 8. You may have to walk part of it, but that is fine. Just do what you can and then participate in some virtual races, too.

This is a sticky topic! I am on W1D1 --- due to an incredibly busy schedule, the only race in my area is directly on the end of W8 -----
Is this too soon? Or is this a fabulous motivating tool????
I know I am nervous to do my first one, but don't know if I am pushing the envelope too much.
Any advice?

One of the first things (after buying new shoes) that I did when I decided to start walking was to sign up for a 5K. My first one is on March 29 to support a local food bank. I plan to walk/jog the following weekend with a friend to celebrate my birthday. I am also checking out a couple of other 5Ks this spring. I can't wait!

A group of girls and I are doing a Dirty Girl mud run in May 2014. The last 5K I ran was a Veteran's run with my son a few years ago. We had a great time. He recently started running track with his high school and told me that he needs a running partner, so here I am.

I signed up for "Run Like a Diva" in Myrtle Beach in April. I hope to run the whole way by then. I'll run/walk it if I have to.

My town does a Thanksgiving 5k (Turkey Race). I think I will sign up for it and make it a yearly tradition. Nothing like 5Ks and Turkeys. emoticon emoticon I don't know if I'll be able to run but I'm going to try my best. Wait! NO!! I WILL RUN THIS 5K. I'm not going to do that whole "do my best" crap. Because the truth is I'll use that as an excuse to walk and not try as hard. I WILL RUN this race!!!! emoticon

Debating whether to sign up for a race in a college town near me next month, I feel like I would be ready for it, but I don't have a car to get me there, and I'm not sure if my family would be supportive (Not to mention I don't have a lot of spare cash.) I originally planned to just do my 5K on the treadmill or maybe map a run, but now I really wish there was an actual race near me.

I did a 5k this morning, but walked a great deal. DOES that still count for this team's?

To motivate myself, I am signed up for a 5k on Oct 26th (I know it's before the 8 weeks are up). It's a walk/run so if I can't run it all by then I can walk it. Then I'm thinking of signing up for a June 5k with my cousin to give me another goal to work towards.

I signed up for a 5K in the 31th ATHENS CLASSIC MARATHON in Athens on 10 November 2013.
So tomorrow I begin the training of the 8 weeks. Last year I did it again, not running but walking. Who knows! Maybe this year it will be running!

It gets easier.
When I first started, I had a hard time running from mailbox to mailbox, let alone even run a block. I tried running on the treadmill which helped a lot. My first goal was to be about to run the length of one whole song. The treadmill does some of the work for you but it will still help you find your rhythm and work on your wind.

I found something on youtube called chi-running and that did it for me.

Good luck.

I am not up to running or jogging a race just yet, BUT I can walk one! I have signed up for:

A Run for Maggie's Place in Phoenix, Oct. 6th!!
http://www.maggiesplace.org/events/mp9k-
arizona/
They have a signature 9K (one for every month of pregnancy) and I plan to walk that one.
Maggie's Place is a non-profit organization that helps pregnant women.

The other race that I may try to jog/run is the Hot Chocolate run in Dec.

I just did my first day of week one and it was totally brutal. Does it get easier??

Just completed my first 5K!
I entered the Biggest Loser Off Road Challenge in Marsailles, Il and it rocked!
It was challenging for sure. I felt great about being able to complete the obstacles and I was still running at the end of it.
It was ah-mazing!

I'm going to do a Sept. 21 Mud Run in WI. I've always wanted to do one! I did a 5k two years ago, but fell off the wagon (again!) and am getting back into running/exercising in general. Super excited for the mud run, though!!
