Even if you walk it it should be ok. I ran when I could and I did stop to walk a lot. The run I went to had a lot of different running abilities so there are going to be a lot of people in a similar situation as you. I was just proud I did it. Especially because I have Exercise induced Asthma. I had a huge adrenaline rush though that kept me going and I just ran for my own personal best and not to run the fastest. I was wheezing and coughing a lot after I finished but it calmed down.

Hi everybody. I'm new to this spark team. I recently have added running into my fitness routine. In fact, I did my first 5K run this morning. I did pretty good for just taking it up a few months ago and it being my first race.

I figure, this is a good start. I want to be able to build on my endurance. I run-walked it today. I have a year before this race I did happens again so I have lots of time to improve. I did the training for my run by myself with little help and guidance, just did what felt right. I think I would benefit from guidance and proper training techniques.
