Smile 3fc Midsummer Night's 5k

Is it already time for another 5K? You bet it is

We have had such great results from our first three 5K's that we can't stop now! Our 4th 5K will be titled MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S...as we head towards those hotter days of summer We may choose to do our 5K in the cooler part of the evening.

For those that are new, or not sure what is going on here, we are about to enter our 4th 5K as a group. We do a 5K, which is 3.1 miles, on or about the same day supporting each other with our results and experiences. We have found out that it almost impossible not to fit into one of our categories...if you can't find one, we will make one for you!

ALL SIGN-UPS and your NUMBERS will be posted in the post following this one. After you post and I reply that you are in, you may go to it and find your number. I try to make the list colorful and fun...with my very limited artistic and mental skills I do have some nicknames and name variations for some of you. If I offend you in anyway please PM me and I will change it...if you do not have a nickname please PM me and I will get you one. Some are easy and some, because our "history" together is limited, are difficult...some I am sure just HATE it! Sorry

ALL RESULTS will be posted in this thread. I tried to separate sign-ups and results before and it just became too confusing. I am hoping this works.

DATE of 5K ~ AUGUST 1-3 This gives us almost a month to train and 3 days to complete it or do several of them if we want.

CATEGORIES ~

ELITE ~ For those that do this for a living!

SEMI-ELITE ~ For those that walk/run 5K's on a regular basis

VIRGINS NO MORE For all of you that started here as VIRGINS and are now experienced

VIRGINS ~Self explanatory

BALL and CHAIN ~ Grab that significant other and get them moving

TREADMILL ~ Yes you can do it on a

SWIMMING ~or by water

I'D RATHER READ A BOOK ~ nothing wrong with that...but maybe it's time to MOVE IT! just a little

ME and MY MACHINE ~ or by or or or you can 'rastle yer 3.1 miles if ya want...not picky here

DANCE ~ dance it

I WANT MY MOMMY or FAMILY PLANNING ~ Take the kids

GRAB the NEIGHBORS ~

EARLY BIRD SPECIAL ~ The dates aren't good for you? Well too bad! You can do it anytime, we accept ALL entries!

NEIGHBORS ARE TALKING ~ Are you looking so good the neighbors are talking? well get out there and show it off!

SHOP TIL YOU DROP ~ A few miles around the mall works for us too

YARD PARTY ~ Mowing the grass and weed whacking for about an hour will do!

THIS IS FOR THE BIRDS ~For BIG and little BIRD'S and BARBARA and CYNDIM

I LOVE A PARADE ~ Bring your friends ~ wear your costumes!

As you can see, we will find a way to get you in....give it a shot...we have had some amazing success stories...unfortunately many of them went BYE BYE in THE CRASH!

Time for new stories! Time to try something new! Time to get up and MOVE IT!!

Oh well, you KNOW I'm IN! I would love to be #21 again (So...legal ) since I will be turning 20 years past legal just a few days after this most highly vaunted event!!! Dare I say it? I will attempt to jog 1/2 of it this time around...on a serious, timed course. Seems fitting for my last 40-yr old hurrah! I NEVER would have thought I'd be doing this back in January while in "sittin' on my duff too much land" THANKS EZ!!! You've been an inspiration and helpful duff-kicker

34 is etched on my brain (or on my calendar anyway!) so would like that again. if possible. I'm going to aim for 5K on foot each day and at least one 10K on the bike. It will be Old Home Days here but I'm sure I'll be able to fit this in!

I'm in again. I actually really liked being #41, as that was the age I turned my life around. But I honestly don't mind what number I get, as I don't want it to be too difficult for you.

Thanks again Gary for organising these. I often walk 5km on the treadmill or outside, but it was great this last weekend to actually push myself a little on one or two days, when I would have preferred to do a little less.

I'm in. And DH too. He loves being part of the 3FC 5K's. Even when he forgets that is what we are doing.

I'm doing this, you bet. Any number is fine with me. Maybe I can do so many 3FC 5ks that I'll sport every number by the time I retire my sneakers. So what I'd like to know is what do I wear? Something Shakespeareian perhaps or maybe a woodland fairy costume? We'll just have to think on this one. I'll be entering the semi-elite walking category.
