Running My First 5K This Year

I signed up for my first 5K this year:

Mercy Medical Center Presents
4th Annual Run for the Red 5K Run and Health Walk
Benefitting the Gateway Area Chapter of the American Red Cross
Sunday, November 20, 2011 at Noon

I've been dying to run a race this year and didn't think I'd actually get to since we're almost in the month of November.  I consulted the good ol' internet and found out there are actually quite a few races around the Quad Cities in November and December.  Who knew?! 

This one grabbed my attention because it's only 15 minutes away and it starts at noon!  No getting up at the butt crack of dawn to run my little heart out.

I actually registered, so there is no getting out of it!  Now I just need a pair of running shoes and to start training and I should be all set.

Hubs told me that I was crazy, but he and Quinn would be there to cheer me on!

Any running shoe suggestions?

Wish me luck!


  1. Good luck! I am so not a runner any more.

  2. I go to Running Wild in Dport! They are great at finding a shoe that is the perfect fit for you!! Good luck on the race.


Thanks for the comment love!
