I do have to buy new shoes now. My foot hurt after the first time, so i waited until today. I am just about to go buy some shoes and hit the gym again. I know you have to be carefull with new shoes, but i'm only on 5x 1 minute so that should be fine :)
I think 5k sneaks up on you. I took the dog for a hike yesterday, meant to take one trail, took another one, and when I got home discovered that the "accidental" trail was 3.25mi. I was a bit achey by the time I got home, but it was a good, amazing ache.
Good for you. I was also in your shoes last year and surprised myself by doing a few 5ks last year. I had always seen myself as a couch potato. It's great that you are doing things you never imagined. I signed up for a 10k this year and I am a bit freaked out, so I think that I better start training for that one of these days. Best of luck to you.
