Thanks for letting me know about your situation, although I'm very sorry to hear about what you're going through. But I know that you'll get back to exercising soon, and hopefully we'll get to participate in something like this in the future.
Unfortunately due to some physical issues outside my control, I'm having to take the next 5-6 weeks off exercise, so I can't do this. :( I was looking forward to it too. I'm hoping to get back to 5Ks in February or so...
Thanks, Amanda/Pookasluagh. It would be great if you and willing members of your family came, but I completely understand if it's too soon. In any case, walking/running is great too, and would take some of the pressure off of me, since I'm not the most fit person and have issues with asthma from time to time. Anyway, keep me posted if you decide to come out!
I'll have to see if that becomes a possibility for me. My son and I just did that 5K the day before the MacAllister Walk, so it might be a bit too soon, but it sounds like fun. I would definitely walk/run. I know I can't run the whole thing! :D
I remember you too, MONIRAQ! Truthfully, I'm not sure if I'm ready for this either, but I guess I'm going to give this a shot. I've been putting it off for too long! Thanks so much for the support, and we'll see how this goes.
Those of you at the McAllister Park SparkTeam Meet may remember me as the girl who’s been on Sparkpeople for over 3 years and never posted anything…until now that is.
Anyway, just wanted to let you know about an event that I’m thinking of participating in…basic info is below:

Venue: Tejas Rodeo

For more information, please visit http://www.solerssports.com/events/bulverd e-food-pantry-holiday-hunger-run-5k/
And as this would be my first 5k (or 1st race ever, for that matter), I’d probably run/walk the distance, but who knows? Maybe the adrenaline rush from doing this with a bunch of people will lead me to run the whole thing. If anyone’s interested in participating with me, please send me an e-mail, or post on this forum, and we can make arrangements to meet up.
