I ended up not running. My brother-in-law joined me for the race. He did his normal morning run of 3.5-4 miles, came home changed into dry clothes and we walked to the race site, got our numbers, hung out and he stayed by my side the whole race, egging me on to keep up my pace. I don't know my exact time--somewhere around 51 minutes, but I am pretty happy with that. Afterwards, we walked back to his house and chatted a bit before I headed home. With the walking back and forth to the house, I did over 12000 steps before 1030 in the morning, so this day is a win even with the sore knees.
ETA: Amy, my legs give out way before my lungs and that is what holds me back from runnning. Completely the opposite of you.
