I will be participating in my first half-marathon on Saturday (Jan 5). I won't be running it, and will probably walk most of it. I am planning to start and end this year with half-marathons.

I'll walk most of Saturday, and then spend the year training and (hopefully) run the race I have scheduled for December!

Mike and I did the 5K Resolution Run in 34:48 tonight. Started in a snowy parking lot and ran mainly on the street but had to run on an icy sidewalk for a portion of it. We managed to stay upright but we overheard one lady say that she fell two times tonight. I was so proud of my husband as he just started running in September of this year.

Anne, Frances & I walked our Harmony 5K today.

Anne has been very sick and I had an MS relapse, so we were so glad we could both walk it today!

I did a 5K this afternoon and had a really good time! I wasn't expecting much - I haven't run in almost two weeks, but I ended up finishing with my 3rd fastest 5K time ever!

Have fun KIMMIEP! Judi, I guess I should not be complaining about rain and 38 degrees F during my 5K race this morning emoticon Have an awesome time.

I ran the last race of 2012 this morning and finished first in my age division...will begin the New Year with a half-marathon in the morning. Not too sure how well I will do, however, my goal is to finish so I can start the new year with a healthy activity.

HAPPY SPARK RUNNING, everyone!

I have a 5k Resolution Run tomorrow morning, that may test my resolve!! It's supposed to be -31Celcius with a 15k wind. I'm afraid I'm not that dedicated, but knowing how quickly the weather forecast changes around here, I'll wait til tomorrow morning to decide.
