Im excited. I found a local running club (disclaimer: I dont run yet, haha). I paid $10 for a year's membership. It's really cool - they hold monthly 5ks that only cost $5 to enter. I'm signed up for the Halloween one.
They also email the club members through Facebook(I think there's only 17 of us) and give away free entries to other local races, first come first serve. I've already gotten notices of about 4 race entries already, and it's only been a couple of weeks.
I decided to grab one of the free entries for this weekend. It's a costume 5K, which will be interesting. So far the "easiest" costume I've heard suggested for me is getting a retro jogging suit and maybe an Afro wig. Not sure what I want to dress up as though....
But yay! I love doing 5Ks. It's just such an exciting feeling to finish, and do better sometimes.
