I'm not a huge fan of running but I enjoy walking! I have signed up for a mile walk that raises money for breast cancer. It's on December 14th in Sacramento, CA. It's called the Santa Run, they provide you with a Santa Suit and everyone walks down town dressed up. What a fun way to raise money and get exercise!

There is a 5k race my fiance and I like to do together, we've been dating almost 4 years and have done the race together 3 of the last 4 years. We missed it last year, but it was just last weekend this year. We both earned medals in our age divisions (top 3 runners in each age group get a little running medal), haha... Its our goal every year to get a medal, so far we are both 3 for 3!

We have discussed wanting to continue participating in that same race each year, but we have also started tossing around the idea of a marathon or sprint triathlon. (don't think I could handle a full blown tri).

I always used to HATE running, but when we started dating my fiance helped me find a really nice pair of running shoes. All of the joint pain I had endured as a result of running before the shoes vanished and now I love running, as long as I have my shoes! haha.

That's great! I would love to get my hubby to run with me! He finds it boring! :(

Running with your partner can be so much fun and so rewarding!

I did my first half marathon last June in Lake Placid, NY. I just jumped right in and my goal was just to finish, which I did in just under 3 hours. It was a beautiful race through the most amazing mountains. It was the best feeling to cross that line, although I must say I have never felt so much pain in my life than what I felt the next day. It was that much more special because my fiance proposed the day before the race. If that wasn't inspiration to cross the line then I don't know what is. We are both doing the race this year and it is going to become a tradition I hope. My goal this year is to beat last year's time.

There is a great training website for eerything from 5ks to marathons for beginners to experts. It is www.halhigdon.com. Also, midwestrunner.com has a list of races if you live in the midwest. I really enjoy 5ks! There are some really really fun ones out there!

I will be doing a 30K in October. I've never done one before, and I'm looking forward to seeing the pounds drop as I train! The 30K is one month out from my wedding, which was a great push to get me off my butt and out walking!

Has anyone done a walk this long before? emoticon

I've done 3 5k's and it is a blast! It's great for you and the community! I've gotten better times on each one, too. I want to do a 10K, but haven't committed to it yet. I want to be able to RUN the 5K first. LOL!

I have done two half marathons jogging and walking. I got my training schedule from nikeplus.com and I have a nikeplus ID watch to mapout my runs. Running outside is harder than a treadmill so I think it's a good idea to start training outside. Good luck!!

I did my first 5K on my birthday this year (March 14th). A friend and I went together, and we walked, but it still only took us about 45 minutes! I was really proud of myself (not really for walking the 3.1 miles, but saying that I wanted to do a 5K and I actually did it).

My dad and I are planning on walking/running the WPAFB Air Force Half Marathon in September. I'm not sure how to go about training for 13.1 miles...especially since I use the treadmill in my apartment clubhouse, and we're only allowed to be on the equipment for 30 minutes at a time. I guess I'll just have to go outside and find some marked trails. Any other suggestions from anyone?

Has anybody done a race for charity? Are you planning on being part of a race?

I'm about to be a part of my first 5K this spring and hopefully I can increase it to 10K by the fall.

I'd love to hear suggestions and advice regarding this!
