Less than a month ago, I graduated from C25K and ran my first 5k in 43:05 (a 13:45 pace). Today, I ran 5k in a training run for the first time in 39:00 (a 12:24 pace). I still won't be winning my age division any time soon, but dang, that feels good!

Ran my first 10K on 3 June! It was a tough course with hills and it was pouring down rain!! I was soaking wet from head to toe. I was dead last!! But I didn't care because I had a time of 62 mins 1 sec (1 hr 2 mins 1 sec....whichever you prefer....the Dutch just put minutes)!!! I posted a few pics on my page and wrote a blog about the experience!!! I am so happy! The C25K program made me a real runner and I could not have done it without this program!!

Rather than waiting around for someone to fall in love with me I fell in love with myself. Either way, once you're loved your lights are on.-Author Unknown

I finished my 10K Runner app program today! It was a tough run, but I finished it. Now I want to make one run each week devoted to pace. Wanting to get to 10 min. mile eventually. Been working on this since starting C25K last November. Feels good to hit a milestone. : )

Sounds like you are all doing great! I ran my outdoor, hilly walking route on a cross-country path a few times one week and was so sore! It's awesome that you run hills regularly. I hope to do that more this summer. For now, I like to run in "laboratory conditions" (indoors, on the flat treadmill) emoticon .

Set a personal best this week in spite of the rain of 27minutes. Really pleased.

Ran my first 5K yesterday. It was actually 5.4K (3.35 mi). I finished 3rd in my 40-44 division with 33:53, pace 10:06. I just found out about this race on Thurs and decided to do it because it would be a good one for practice -I have never run with other people or without my dog. It was a 10K & 5K with 600 runners, 135 were in the 5K. There were a few hills and that was where I did really well since my regular route has a lot of hills. I passed a lot of people that stopped to walk and that really made me smile. I still have a Turkey Trot next week. Woo-hoo go C25K Grads!

I ran a 5k today!- Unofficial time 36:06-faster than my training runs and faster than my 1st 5k (in 2007). Woo Hoo!!! I can't wait to see how Tessa's 5k went today! Go Tess! I'm rooting for you!

Kathleen and Sharon – congrats!!!

The race was great. He was so excited! It took us 50 minutes, but we were not the last ones to finish. The last mile was tough – I carried him for some of it, let him ride on my back, and jogged backwards to coax him along – but we did it! Of course, at the end, after I carried him for about 1/8 of a mile, he sees the finish line and TAKES OFF, while I huff and puff (he does weigh 50 pounds!) to cross it – so he looked like finishing a 5k was a piece of cake, while I looked like I was the one holding him back! Kids… Looking forward to our next one!

Cindy, it's so great that your kids run with you. I took him along with me so I could finally do a real 5k (not that the ones I do on the TM aren't real, but you know what I mean), but I do think we can start doing some runs outside together too. I love my TM, truly, but I running outside, esp when the temps are so nice, is such a treat.

And I would LOVE to plan an event to run together! I'd even get a sitter. :)

Kathleen - way to go on your PR!

Sharon - awesome on completing your 10K -- it is so amazing how far we can come in just the first few months of running, isnt it? Way to go

Melissa - I am running with my 14 year-old but I cannot imagine where he would be had we started when he was younger. My 17 year old runs with us occasionally, and my 22 year old just finished week 5 day 3 of C25k. Awesome.

Do you ever go down to the Delaware beaches? Every summer they have a series of races called Seven Sisters. There are people of all age groups - kids to senior citizens that participate. They even have 1 mile fun runs for families. They have a 10k and a 10 miler at the beginning and end of the season if I remember. This year we are going down for Sea Witch and will probably do a 5k as part of our training for the half in mid December.

We are so lucky to have so many events and places to run around us! We should really try to run together one weekend

I did my first 5k race on Sunday! I get happier about my accomplishment by the day. I set a new PR! emoticon
Check out my Blog "5k Indigestion"!

Melissa, that's AWESOME! My 4 year old son came to my race and now it's all he talks about. I'll have to get him out running with me a little bit now and then so he can join me someday!

Congrats Cindy! Super proud of you!!!

I just signed my son (5) and I up for the Philly AIDS walk/run. The run is 5k and I think we're going to give it a shot together. The other options are (1) a 12k walk, though they do have buses that take you back to the finish line if we can't finish or (2) a 1 mile "stroller walk," which would just be insulting to my DS. ;) We'll stay at the back of the pack and do it at our own pace.

One of these days, I think I'd like to do a 5k solo... but every time I decide I want to do one, I then really want him to do it with me. I think it's such a good lesson for him and we'll improve together as we get more of them under our belts!

Awesome Corrine! Way to go!

I ran my own 10 k this morning...no official time, just me and the trail. I am feeling it this afternoon - tight in the legs. I am looking forward to my rest day tomorrow. I am so proud of the distance though. As I train through this 1/2, I hope that the quicker mileage gains and my body do get along! But today - I did it!

I ran a 6K this morning. It was really fun - don't ask me why it was a 6K and not a 5K but oh well! I love these races! I have one planned for the Saturday before Thanksgiving, I think I would like to try one before that too! emoticon

You are right! So many of us are running about the same pace. Now, if we could just all get together every weekend and run as a group! Wouldn't that be the best.

Ran my second 5k this morning! My time was about the same as my first (around 37 mins) but it was a much more difficult course with a ton of hills, so I'm going to consider it an improvement!

Found the next 5k... it's called the Bloomer Boogie, and it's all trails. I'm really excited - after this next once I think I'll start training for an 8 or 10k. :D
