"It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all - in which case, you fail by default. Never give up and never be afraid to try." ~ J.K. Rowling

I am doing the RFTC in Dallas, but will be walking as the event is HUGE (well over 30,000 people) and because I am still recovering from my marathon on Sunday. Go out and have a GREAT time for a GREAT cause.
"When there's something you want fight for it. Don't give up-no matter how hopeless it seems, even when you've lost hope, cause years from now you're gonna look back and wish you gave it one more shot cause the best things in life don't come easy."
"If you think you can or you think you can't, you're right" -Henry Ford
Woo hoo and congrats!!! You'll be great and I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time. I did my first 5k last month and couldn't run a mile straight yet. It was a ton of fun and I can't wait for the next one now.
Be sure to let us know how is goes!

I was originally registered for my first 5k in November but kinda got talked into doing The Race for the Cure tomorrow in Downtown Miami. The good thing is it's a run/walk and it'll be ok if I am super duper slow. I ran 3 miles outside for the fist time the other day and I am a slow poke but I did it. I took it very easy so as not to hurt myself and I just got over H1N1 last week. I have gone longer than that on the treadmill, about 4 miles. I am a bit nervous :)
