I have signed up for my first official race
November 13, 2012 at 11:37 AM

I signed up for a 5 mile race this coming Saturday. It's a local race that benefits our  children's shelter.

I'm nervous, excited, scared and on the verge of panic. Most I've run at this point is 4.19 miles.

Someone tell me I can do this!!

jaw drop

    Hi Crystal,

    Back in mid June I started the C25K program. It's Couch to 5K.

    You add a little more running each day for two months.  It took me a little longer because some weeks I just didn't feel I was ready to move on so I repeated a week. Now I still run two to three days a week and walk a couple of miles on the days I don't run.
