I'm training for my first half marathon, and actually ran my first race, a 7k, this past weekend. I now seem to have some strange desire to run every race I can find. But they're expensive! 8k or more, and I'm in for sure, but I'm wondering if it's really worth the money to run a bunch of 5ks as well. I know I'd have fun, but do you guys think shorter races will also help with my training? I'm still really new to this. Are there other benefits I haven't considered?
Thanks, and happy running!
