I’m running a 5K tomorrow – OMG – what have I gotten myself into? …


My company, Bonnier Corp., is putting on a 5K tomorrow and I signed up to do it. Gulp! I decided to run it 2.5 weeks ago. I thought I’d be like Nike and Just Do It! Now, I feel that I am physically fit. I workout 2-4 times a week on my lunch break.

So, instead of taking my regular class on my lunch break I decided to run the treadmill to see if I could physically run the 3.16 miles. And I did. No sweat (well, I did technically sweat, but you know what I mean.)

But the problem is: I’ve never run outside before. I mean I was a kid I ran on the track during gym, but that’s the extent of it. So tomorrow is going to be a whole new experience for me. Wish me luck – I plan on running the whole thing!

Have you ever run a 5K before? Any tips? I’m going to need them.
