I've only done a few 5k's. They are very fun and I have met a lot of nice people. Report
You are such an inspiration to so many others, Coach Nicole. Keep up the good work! Report

Great Report
I've never done a 5k. I've always wanted to. I don't think we've ever had one around our area Report
thanks. Report
I did my first (& only so far) 5k about 6.5 years (& ?~50-70 lbs lighter). Was in Dec, there were some slippery/icy points, but I had been training for it, but not so much outside (don't love cold). My time was slow, but I didn't walk, though I did slow to a crawl, bunches of times because of the ice-I just did NOT want to fall! Today I saw that in mid Aug there's a 5k that is right in my hood, plus they have a training for it every Monday night, starting in a few days. Feeling like I will do several more afterwards this fall. But right now have to take a break walking 30 min., so we shall see. I'm 54 now. Report
I've always wanted to be in a 5k, not for the racing, but to say I've done it. I just can never afford the entry fee....feeding my family is way more important. Report
Why I've never done a 5k - I will end up coming in last. Report
Thank you Coach Nicole for this motivation. I am running/walking my first 5K next month. I haven't been training but walk everyday. This will ready help me accomplish crossing the finish line along with my IPod (LOL) Report

I enjoyed this article for several reasons: 1) It's good to know that even certified sports professionals still have goals that are close to the same level as mine (and I'm nowhere near the fitness level as Coach Nicole!); 2) I've done several 5K's - some more walking than jogging and this article confirmed some of my strategies to get through them; 3) Now I want to train for a 5K again! Thanks Coach!!! Report
I'm so excited to run my first race in September! These are some really good tips. Report
