I'm signed up!

The prizes are a random drawing. That way, you don't have to have the best time but could still win something! So sign up!

The truth of the matter is that you can always run faster. The fact of the matter is that sometimes the truth hurts!

When I put my info in I put the age in.. and I don't think prizes are given out on times BUT that you complete it by putting a time in :) .. that's good for me since I am SLOW. lol

I think it is great to be getting older - there are fewer in the age brackets the older you get so I look forward to it in the idea that while I may never have the legs of a Kenyan - eventually I will move up in the standings just be sheer titration =)

Hillary, don't let age be a deterent! Toy are only a few years older than ,e, and one of my heroes is 91 and runs....yes, RUNS 5K's. He is the only one in his age group! Seriously, I did a 5K on Thanksgiving, and it was just great dto get out and burn some calories before the feast, even in the sleet! I now get up early every holiday and do a virtual 5K.......or more. Guess I will be out walking on Sunday before I start wine-ing!

Thank you Beth ... I went and explored the page and saw that most people were a bit younger than me and got all self -conscious !! .... Do they have a Wooden Spoon prize do you know ?
emoticon Seriously though on this side of the world we have a 5K Walk for Life which I had thought of entering but don't think it is until the New Year ...so guess that precludes me ?

Hilary . Dunedin. South Island . NZ.
Every day when fully lived- is a grand succession of experiences both pleasant and unpleasant - for life is made up of both- and without the one the other would not be recognized or appreciated.

I would much rather have regrets about not doing what people said, than regretting what my heart led me to and wondering what life had been like if I had just been myself.

I used iron on letters to put 'FINISHER' on my HM shirts.

Thanks for the info it might be just what I need to re-motivate myself and get back into a training program. I got the news from my doctor that me jogging or running is out for my future or I will create more internal damage to my right knee soft tissue. I did get the green light to do races as a walker though. Maybe I can figure out how to increase my speed walking and do interval that way instead of with jog/run intervals.

Prizes are always good.
