    I am still on the fence about this. I am thinking about doing a 5k in April. This would be my first one and I have never run in my life.

    It's kind of scary.

  • I have a 5k set for March. I'm sure I'll be doing more than that though.

    I am running the St. Paddy's Day Dash 5K in Dallas on March 12. Then, April 10, I am doing my first sprint triathlon in Flower Mound, TX. I'm sure there will be more to come after that, but nothing official YET.
  • I've got two 5Ks in April.... these will be my second and third. :)

    Edit: Suppose I should add what they are.... the Pittsburgh Pirates 5K Home Run on April 9th, and the Pittsburgh Superhero Run on April 30th.

    What is everyone's favorite distance race? 5K? 10K? 13.1? 26.2? I like them all but nothing felt as good as 26.2. I have completed two marathons. If I do another one my goal would be to get under 4 hours. When I saw the person on the Biggest Loser do it I was holy crap if they can do it I can!

    A Red Cross 5k on March 26th will be my first.

    And I just signed up for the Warrior Dash on June 11th. Two days after my 39th birthday. :drinker:

    Right now, the 5K is fine for me as far as a pure running event. My goal for this year is 2-3 5K races, 3-4 sprint triathlons and MAYBE the Tough Mudder (www.toughmudder.com if you don't know what that is) in October. Then, next year, I may shoot for an Olympic distance tri or two along with a couple of sprints and a couple 5K races or maybe a 10K.

    Right now I'm looking at a 10 miler on March 12, and the Pittsburgh Marathon in mid May. If my schedule allows I'm going to try and fit a couple other 5 or 10k in there as well.

    Tri season is coming up. I have 3 sprints and 2 Olympics with a Half Iron Man (Augusta,GA) to round it out...If I can stay healthy! Only run I had coming up was the Charleston Cooper River 10K in April..but my knee isnt holding together really well..so I am doubtful to push for it with tri season coming..
    I Did Nashville full..Its a really well run race! I have Savannah GA full (late fall) and then Big Surr next May (2012) as tenative fulls..
  • I'm doing my first 5k ever on March 6. It's the Edinburgh Meadows Marathon event, and I'm running for charity. I've been working on it since mid-January and now, two weeks before the run, I'm finally starting to feel like I might be able to complete the whole thing. I will be soo proud if/when I do!
