It’s really happening! I made a goal for myself to complete a 5K before I turned 25 and I’m happy to say that I registered for my first 5K this morning! My co-worker and husband are both joining me in this 5K. As of right now, I am not really nervous. I’d say on a nervousness scale of 1 to 10, I am at a 2. The 5K will be taking place in a nearby city on April 28, 2012. The only real expense for this 5K is the entry fee. Both my co-worker and my husband are supportive of my weight-loss efforts so I was very pleased when they expressed their interest in joining me at this event!

I know right now that I am not going to be running the entire 5K. I don’t even think that I can run a mile at this time, or five minutes straight for that matter. I want it, though. I want to be able to run a mile, which makes me want to run two miles, and then three. I love the feeling of accomplishment, so I think that even if I don’t run half of the 5K, I will still be so happy to complete it!
I’ve never been a spectator or a participant in a 5K before. Does anyone have any tips/advice that I can take with me?
