Great info! I wear a Road ID on my shoe...the kind with a pocket to hold my key, but I had not considered creating an ICE contact entry on my phone. As soon as I finished the article, I created one.

I love this kind of articles, they're so helpful. I ran 5 K virtual race last month, and now I'm heading for a real 5.8 K race in 3 weeks. I found this article http://www.runbritain.com/articles/the-run ner-s-10-point-race-recovery-plan/ in case someone was wondering for some post-recovery after a 5K race.
Thansk for the great article. A few of my friends and I are planning to run a 5K in December and these are some great tips. I was sort of wondering what to pack/bring and I'm the kind of person who is always nervous about something til I do it at least once or twice.
I am running a day after Thanksgiving 5K for a local Hospice organization. Anyone have any experience or suggestions concerning getting through the big feast day knowing that there is a race the next day? Foods to pay special attention to include or avoid? I appreciate any insight anyone may have.
Nice how-to Nancy! Wish I'd had this on my first race. Keep in mind that any layers you wear that you might want to take off during the race should be something you're willing/able to tie around your waist or carry. (The sleeveless overshirt doesn't work well for this reason).
