Once you take off you will just be a little more pumped to run everyday after that.

Stick with it. Before I just barely managed to run 30 seconds. Last week I ran 5 minutes... It does get easier.

I am training for my first 5K this year too; but I am not sure which one I will be in it depends on which one I am ready for it's a "wait and see" type of thing; as there are two here one in September which is for the Heart Association in the Nocatee neighborhood and then there is the 5K with Donna which is to raise money for breast cancer research which takes place at the players club off of PGA Blvd. emoticon

For motivation I signed myself up for several 5ks over the next couple of months. March 20th I'm doing the Warrior Dash (www.warriordash.com), then have a regular 5k in April and another mud run type thing at the end of May. I'm excited! My goal is to be able to run a half by next January. :D

I'm training to do my first ever 5k probably in May. I also signed up for a virtual SP 5k the last week of April. I really need to push myself through my training over the next two months. I don't want to delay the 5k past May, but so far I am only able to run 1 mile before being exhausted. I could probably walk/run a 5k right now with no problems, but my goal is to jog the whole thing.

I am running my first 5k on April 2nd. It is an April Fool's Day Race for the Red Cross. I mainly signed up to help keep me motivated and I know that if I wait until I am skinny to do a race I might be waiting a long time.

I have a 5K tomorrow! I'm nervous, but it is my second one, so I know I will survive. Last time I ran a 46, in December. I'm hoping to beat that, but I'm a slow runner, and I am moving through Couch to 5K very slowly.

I did my first 5K this past December. It was AWESOME!!! I was so nervous standing at the start line, I thought I was going to hurl. Luckily, the bell sounded, I started and the nerves dropped away. It was hard but a good kind of hard. To help with my weight loss and training I am looking to do a few runs between now and June. I figure 1 a month should be good. The first is a 5K in March, and the last one I have picked, is a 10K in June. Signing up for runs/races, gives me a mini goal to work towards. Good luck with your running!

I'm training to do my first 5K ever, hopefully on April 30. (Thanks to all the support here!) My goal is to jog the entire 5K...it's a goal, but if I need to walk for a while, then that's what I'll do.

There is a website: runningintheusa.com where you can search for races/runs in your state and area. Great resource!

I have done several 5k's doing a mix of walking and running. Because I live in a rural area with not much close to me I tend to do them for whatever the cause is. I did do a 10k last April (mostly walking) that was 4 hours away but I was up in the area for business. It was for autism, which is something that I support. I've also done a Turkey Trot that raised food donations for a local food bank as well as cash for a severely injured soldier. Last year I did a 15 mile walk (wasn't running then) and plan to do it again this year which is the Bataan Death March Memorial to commemorate all those who were in the Battaan Death March. It is about 2 1/2 hours from me and on White Sands Missile Range. There are about 1/4 civilians and 3/4 military personnel and there were 5000 participants. It was so awesome and inspiring.
I would love to do one for fallen policemen if there was one near me. Another cause that is close to my heart.

Thank you all for sharing. I have volunteered for so many walks/runs and I always admired the determination of all of the participants so this is my year to join those runners. I will start training tomorrow regardless of the weather.
