My First 5K!

This Saturday, I am running my very first 5K! It's not that I just discovered exercise or anything, I just never really made the effort to run in any races before. Also, let's be serious, Saturday morning races don't usually mesh well with Friday nights on the town... am I right?

Maybe I'll sneak a sprint at the end to beat him :)
I came across a 5K recently which fell on a weekend that we actually have NO plans, so I persuaded my bf to join in it with me! It's going to be so much fun (I hope?) and most likely beautiful. We are running the race at Chateau Elan, so even if I don't have the greatest run of my life, at least I'll be running next to some pretty vineyards and landscaping..

Also, on the sign up page, it stated that afterwards will be samples and refreshments from local vendors. This has to mean wine samples, right? I mean, who doesn't want wine at 9 am after running 3 miles? I'm in. Now, let's just hope I finish with a somewhat acceptable time.. I'm quite certain the bf is going to leave me in the dust since I have been a crappy runner the past couple of weeks, but I'm ok with that!

Does anyone have any good advice?? Wish me luck!


  1. haha running a race for wine?! J/k you're funny and yes 5Ks never workout with going out on Friday nights and i've never run one either - best of luck!

  2. I'm so proud of you. If you want to keep training back in ATL, I'm totally willing to drive a car full of wine in front of you and let you chase it. Because that's the kind of friend I am.

  3. Good luck! 5Ks are super fun races - I run cross-country and that's how long our races are.

  4. I hope your first 5K went well! You have to update us. :)
