Wow! I signed up for my first ever 5K through weight watchers. It's 5/21/11... I am planning on walking/jogging it, since it's only been 2 months since my surgery. I'm totally stoked, though....
Did you follow a certain plan/program to get yourself ready? I have great admiration for anyone who can run, who can count themselves among those call themselves 'runners'

I have been followig the C25K app that you can get for your iPhone/iPod. I competed 5 weeks out of 9 before I ran the 5K this past Saturday. Gonna start week 6 today. When I started I could barely run one minute without thinking I was going to die, but the program eases into you running longer and longer. I ran a few times on the treadmill, but decided I would run all of it outside. I did not want to run on the treadmill and get outside and it be alot harder. So 5 weeks in, one 5K down, two more planned in the next 4 weeks.
