Thanks!!

And I have to say, I LOVE your 'triathlon' quote! It really made me chuckle when I read it.

I stumbled on this thread late, but let me add my emoticon to Julie on her great race!

Awesome thread, great race report and a fantastic time to boot. Sounds like you had a great time and good memories of your first 5k!

Sure, Cassie - no problem!

It kind of is an interesting thing to watch... and also highlights the kind of support and camaraderie new group members will find here...

Julie,
Is it alright if I bookmark this thread as one of my favorites, and share it with other new rookies. The thread starts with your pre-race anxiety, and ends in such a great inspirational way, I'd love for others to be able to see the path you travelled when they are feeling the same way before their first race.

It just takes the courage to go, and is such an amazing feeling to finish. I wish everyone could do this in their lifetime.

Thanks... you guys are SOO AWESOME!!!

Jenn - that's a BRILLIANT idea! I deliberately made my post detailed so I could copy it off... so I'll print it up and attach it to the back of my bib (which I already planned on saving).

Cassie - I DID THAT YESTERDAY! Thought of you guys at one point and I don't remember what thought it was particularly, but I started laughing... LOL!!!

Congratulations Julie! You did awesome. The rookie runners are always there in spirit -- I felt them too. Love remembering all the stories as I run. Sometimes I'll be running, and just start laughing out loud.

Glad you had a great time, and that is a good write up. Make sure you keep a copy somewhere. I like the idea about putting it on the back of your race bib.

Way to go. What a great race time. Here's something my cousin told me to do - write all about the race - the good, the bad and the ugly, on the back of your bib # and keep them somewhere for future reference/remembering etc. I thought it was a great idea and will definitely do it on my first and all race bibs.

emoticon My Friend on a RACE WELL RUN! I was just teary-eyed reading your report. Your first race will always have a special place in your heart. I was thinking about you as I did a quick 3 miler on the treadmill...glad to hear you had such a wonderful day. LIFE IS GOOD! Now that you have one under your belt, it's only a matter of time before #2, #3, etc. Savor your victory, enjoy some rest, and relish in the notion that you did something that most people never dare dream of doing and that is having the courage to RUN LIKE THE WIND!

HAPPY RUNNING!

WAY TO GO, JULIE!!!

Thanks for sharing that with us, what a wonderful story. I'm so glad you had fun, and what a great time! I told you you'd surprise yourself, but I didn't know it would be that much! WOW!!!

And fourth in your age group is usually an AMAZING feat... so just tell people that, and don't mention there were only three others, LOL!


A healthy, balanced lifestyle is a continual process of climbing back onto that slippery proverbial wagon. Giving up isn't an option.

No one can go back in time and make a brand new start, but anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.

Hey all! First of all - I survived and I DIDN'T fall down at all! LOL

Weather was BEAUTIFUL, although I wouldn't have minded a little bit more cloud cover. Coming back down the second long leg we were running right into the sun, but it wasn't too bad. My sunglasses aren't good for running in, so I managed. After the first little bit of that leg I didn't notice it much.

I slept "ok" last night. My hubby offered to sleep on the couch because I don't sleep great, and often he keeps me awake a bit, so I took him up on it. I slept good till about 3, then dozed with frequent wake-ups till the alarm went off at 5:30. At least that way I wasn't tempted to hit the snooze. Anyway, it was cool and beautiful this morning. Even so, I put sunscreen on, and I'm glad I did because later in the morning it definitely got warmer, and the desert sun is intense even when cool. I got my timing chip and there were wonderful ladies right there to put it on for me, which was unexpected and very nice. I was about 45 minutes before race time, so I had time to wander around and look at the booths, enter some raffles (one was for $50 gift cert. for RedRock Running Co! Unfortunately I didn't win anything *pouts*)

About the time the 1-Mile Walkers left I started jogging around a bit, warming up, stretching, etc. I put my gatorade/water back in my car, took my jacket off and suddenly it hit me - the ONE THING I hadn't thought of! What was I going to do with my car keys?!? Being a treadmill runner usually, I don't have to worry about that! LOL I smacked myself in the head figuratively, then considered my options. I finally realized I could take the one key off, tie it into the shoe without the chip, and tuck it under the laces. That worked a treat, LOL.

That little bit of excitement had an unexpected benefit as I realized I needed to go use the porta-john, lol... so I got that out of the way and felt like I was ready to run. A LOT of people were running in their race shirts, but I like running in something tighter, but with better give, so I just used my regular shirt, and had my other to change into if I needed, which I didn't.

People started gathering around the starting area, and so I did too. I talked to one cute old guy (he ended up winning the 55-59 division, I think?) and he gave me a tip that made me think of all of you - to just listen to my body. It made me smile, and made it seem like you all were closer to me. So, when the buzzer sounded, off I went.

I tried hard to find my regular pace, but I really was handicapped by not usually road running, because I have a hard time pacing myself. Anyway, I did the best I could, settled down and waited for it to feel like I'd found my stride. Unfortunately, I never really did. I don't know if it was the hour, or the fact that it wasn't a treadmill or that slight uphill grade or just one of those runs, but my legs felt like lead the whole run, LOL. It didn't take too long before I realized that I wasn't going to be able to run the whole thing. I was a little disappointed, but once again thought of all of you saying that sometimes you can go faster by taking walk breaks, and I didn't want to be stupid, so I resigned myself to it. I *did* wait till I got to the top of that first leg - the majority of the uphill running - then walked for a bit before picking up again. By this time I was in between a few women with similar paces to mine, and though we weren't running close, it was nice to have some company.

During my second walk break I passed a water station so I went ahead and took one, though usually I can go 3.1 miles without water. I figured since I was walking anyway, I would take advantage of it. The best thing was that they told me there was only 1 more mile to go, LOL. All in all I took 3 walk breaks total. The fourth leg was along a pretty busy street and that was fun, as the cars would honk as they drove by, and the cops were cheering us as we passed them. It was fun.

As I turned onto the first street that we'd run on, the leg with the uphill, I was doing ok, though not great, but well enough to decide that I was going to pick up the pace a bit and try to catch the lady I'd been running ahead of most of the time, who'd passed me on my last walk break. I managed that, and then as we turned onto the little street where the finish line was we both picked up the pace till it was almost a sprint, and passed the finish line together. I even got a high five from Ronald McDonald! LOL And you're right - that excitement you feel as you approach the finish line and everyone is cheering for you is GREAT!

And the best part? They had a big time board right there, and I was SHOCKED! My time was 35:51!! My best time before this was on saturday and that was 42:40! I improved my time by almost 7 minutes! I guess that was one reason my my legs were responding that way too, even though I was TRYING to find my regular pace, LOL. I don't remember the exact number, but I ran it in something like an 11:30 pace? So, I felt much better about walking at that point.

Turns out I was 4/4 in my age division, but I've got a while in this division, and since I only just started running, I'm willing to take the time to improve. I'll definitely be running next year, as well as other races, though maybe not any more before fall. The weather was unseasonably nice and cool for here, and I doubt that will continue.

Anyway, it was loads of fun. And now I've got my first one under my belt and a record to try to beat next time. Thanks for all your support and encouragement - I really DID feel you running alongside me in spirit this morning!!

OH, I forgot to add that we had multiple runners (both male and female) running in the age 70's divisions, and the one who took the cake was an 85 year old woman who did the 5K also! I wanna be HER when I grow up! HEE!

I just did my first 5K race yesterday. I had a similar course, except mine was an out & back - but the first 2.5K was a steady, curvy incline. I run outside, but still tough terrian for me. Don't be afraid to walk a bit. I walked about 3 times for short periods and I think it sped up my time because I did it faster than I've ever run 5K before. So, good luck - you'll do great. It's your first race, right? so no matter what, you're going to have a personal best. Let us know how it goes.

I have only one thing to add. If the race shirt you got is cotton - don't run in it - save it for after the race. If you sweat at all, you will be very uncomfortable. Good luck and HAVE FUN!!

Aspen,

You are soo READY and know that you will have all your spark rookie runners right there with you in spirit. Pin your number in the front so that they can call your number or name out as you cross the finish line. Make sure you are looking up and smiling as you cross, you never know where the race photogs will be and ENJOY! I don't think I slept 2 hours before my first run, but that's OK, adrenaline is a great thing. FLY LIKE THE WIND! Can't wait to hear your report and I will be running with you in spirit tomorrow morning!

HAPPY RUNNING, Friend!

From what I have seen, which has been from the sidelines...

You pin the number on the front, over the stomach is okay, and you can wear whatever shirt you want. I think a lot of people save the race t-shirt to change into after the race.

Thanks for all the good wishes, everyone! I'll be sure to update and at least let ya'll know how I do tomorrow.

Here's some of those stupid questions - is my race number supposed to go on my front or on my back? And I didn't want to pin it over my bustline because (I know this is dumb, but) it won't lay right - is it ok to pin it further down on the shirt (if it IS supposed to be in front)? Is it ok if I don't race in the shirt I got from them?

Pre-race jitters! I think I had them worse on my second race than I did on my first race. LOL - it happens to all of us.

Don't worry too much about the downhill being hard on you. You described it as gradual, so I'm sure it will be fine. Enjoy the day, and best of luck to you.

I am wishing you luck, but I don't think you'll need it!

I understand though, my first 5k is June 7th and it's going to get here long before I can run the whole distance.

Enjoy yourself. I'll be cheering for you!

You will do great! Enjoy the experience, and do the best you can... run your own pace, and if you need to walk some that ok too. I just ran a 5K last week -- first one in a LONG time, and am still alive to tell about it.

Well, I stifled my superstitions and signed up last Friday (the LAST day for pre-registration - not taking ANY chances!) for a Memorial Day 5K for our local Ronald McDonald House. I just went a little earlier to pick up the packet.

So far, nothing bad has happened, LOL.

Picking up the packet was nice in some ways. I saw that the parking is nice and very close, because I was wondering what I should do about my stuff. Also, the lady handing me things was able to answer some of my questions too, like that there would be someone to help my attach my timing chip, and etc.

However, I also saw the course, and I'm a little nervous. It's a simple rectangle, which is nice (nightmares about getting lost, LOL) starting near one end of a long side. However, you start by continuing up the long length of that side, and it's a gradual but steady incline. Being the treadmill runner that I am, I'm nervous about it. I've been running on a 1% incline ever since Nancy mentioned it, but still! Then across the top it's pretty level, then down the other long length its a gradual downhill slope. Part of me is glad of that, but I know that can be just as hard if not harder on your legs. Then across the bottom it's level, then you finish up with the uphill from the first long leg. I'm really hoping I do ok.

I ran an easy 3.1 on Saturday in 42:40... so I'm really hoping to at least manage 45 tomorrow. And not trip. I think maybe that's my biggest goal, not to do a face plant, LOL.

Wish me luck. I'm scared as anything, but I know all the other first timers survived and had fun so I keep telling myself I will too.

Ok, off to read Nancy's articles about first time racers....
