I did three 5k races in 2011, two real (Oktoberfest in Campbell, CA and the Turkey Trot in San Jose, CA) and one virtual race here on SparkPeople. I was out of commission for quite a while letting my foot recover after pushing my speed too soon caused me trouble.
Well, I'm back to walking that much distance with minimum trouble - and looking for 5k races that are either local or easy to get to via public transportation. My goal is to do at least one 5k distance every month for the rest of this year.
So, I've found a few so far. Already registered for the first. Later ones are under consideration, but could change. Anyone know of any others in the next few months - such as smaller localized ones (e.g. Willow Glen had one a couple months ago) - that might be worth looking into? I'm not picky other than needing to get there by bus/foot.
