Default Signed up for my first 5K Run

A friend asked me earlier this year when I started walking if I'd do a 5K. I figured I'd at least walk it, not sure about running on a 4-time surgically repaired ankle. Fast forward about 6 months and I"m now regularly running. Last night I did 2.3 miles after doing a 45min cardio workout. So another friend of mine posted something on FB about a couple 5K's in the area, one the day before Halloween. The registration and check is in the mail. Can't wait. This was actually the first goal I set with my CDE after I got diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I hadn't officially done one but have walked many times over 3.2 miles. Now that my ankle can take the exertion of running I"m going to run the entire thing. Who knows, maybe I'll look at 10K's and possibly a half marathon for next year. Gotta keep setting those goals.

Congrats, Bob, kick some arse!

Only way I would run 5K is if there was a free, all-you-can-eat smorgasboard at the finish line.

Good luck! You should be very proud of yourself! (I'm still in the 5K Walk stage of life -- not sure if I am going to graduate to running anytime soon )

OH YEAHHHH! You will love it. The buzz and atmosphere around the race cannot be beat. The nervousness before it starts and the party afterwards are always a good time.

Enjoy!

I see my registration check was cashed, so it's officially on. Now to figure out a costume to wear for the run.

Hmm, hadn't thought about a cigar for the finish. That would be funny.

EXCELLENT! Signing up is 75% of the battle IMO.... It is something I am always having to do. No event, usually means no training on anything but the bike for me....

I look forward to hearing how it goes!

Default Re: Signed up for my first 5K Run

Just got back from running my first official 5K run. What a blast. This was the Big House, Big Heart run in Ann Arbor, MI. You start/end at Michigan Stadium, with the end coming down the tunnel onto the field, then across the 50 yd line. I"m hooked. It helped alsoto have the nice motivation in front of me. Whomever created the skin tight running pants women wear, I'd like to thank that person.

Official times will be posted later today. I think I'm somewhere around the 30min mark.

Default Re: Signed up for my first 5K Run

Congrats, I recently ran a 5K about a month ago. I wasn't really competing, I was only there as moral support for my wifey. I just went in cold without any training or practice runs at all. I'm not in shape whatsoever, but really good at pushing myself when there's competition.

I jogged the first 1/3, mixed walk/jog the 2/3, and walked the last 1/3. One thing that messed me up was they had markers along the way that said "1", "2", "3". I jogged to the "1" and figured that was 1km instead of 1 mile. So psychologically I was giving up by the time I was at the "2" since I thought that was 2km's instead of 2 miles (had I known I was nearly done at that point, I would have jogged the last mile+).

Next time, if I don't get practice time beforehand, I'd like to walk it with a cigar in hand and cup of scotch or rum. LOL
