MEWIEGELE, I think the Gapper's run is at 10:15 and the 5K starts at 9 and 9:15. I think most joggers will be done in time. I told my friend I'd be prepared to run with her 3 year old if she needed company, assuming they let adults run along with the younger kids. I think she'll be fine, though. We are both registered so they will meet me at the finish, along with my hubby. I'm hoping that motivation combined with the thrill of finishing in the ballpark will push me to a good finish.

Mamasan, I haven't decided on any events aside from the Redlegs this weekend and the Jingle Bell run in December. I'm planning to do a lot of biking this summer and am not sure how I'd get enough run training in to do another 5K.

I cannot make myself be thin today, but I CAN be healthier by making a few smart choices. I focus on what needs to be done today and tomorrow takes care of itself.

Thank you Sparkfriends for being my roses!

Haven't done it yet either but am probably signing up this year too. My son is 3 and he is really excited about running races (like his momma). He did the kids piglet fun run marathon weekend. He had a blast and hasnt stopped talking about it. The biggest problem for us is having another person there to do the kids run while I do the 5k or 10k. We'll see! Hope its a blast!!

Its not just about weight, its about setting goals!

I'm pretty sure I'm going to sign up for the Redlegs 5K, although I'll probably wait until right before the May 30th early registration deadline.. I signed up for the Heart 5K and was sick that day. I'm not the biggest fan of the organized events but like having my time checked so I think I'll just do one more at the end of summer then focus on the Jingle Bell in December, my official runners anniversary.

Has anyone participated in the Redlegs 5K before? I have a friend that has an active 3 year old that wants to get her into running. I've suggested she join me and have the girl partipate in the Gappers kids run. I'd love to hear from someone that's participated before as to whether that would be a good first event for a little one.

I run usually, about a 9:30 mile. But anyone let me (and everyone) know what races you'll be attending and we can meet up, take a picture, whatever if not run/walk together! :)

I have heard the Pig is great. I am pretty slow right now, to be honest, but working hard on it all the time!

I will be at the Teddy Bear 5K in April, but I'm a walker,not a runner. This will be the 4th year that I have participated. Its a great cause! I'm in Indiana and we have a great 5K walk/run on the 4th of July in Greendale. Its relatively flat and times are usually pretty fast. I'll look for you at the Teddy Bear Walk and at least be able to say "hi" to another sparker!
Good luck!

I am planning on doing a local 5K every month this summer (well, starting with March, since I did the mini heart last weekend). So far I am signed up for the Teddy Bear in April and the Redlegs in June. Anyone have any fun ones they are doing in May, July or August? Anyone want to join me?
