How to run a 5k


I ran another.

I completed my second 5K on June 26, doing the Race to the Taste. A fellow teacher and I have kept up our running and ran in the race to the Taste of Chicago! We loved this race because at the end we got to try some delicious healthy foods, enjoy live bands and have a beer! It was wonderful.

Third time is a charm!

On July 28th I ran the Children’s memorial 5k! It was super hot and humid but I ran the whole time and felt amazing! Again, I couldn’t have done it without my running buddy with me the whole way!!

Oops...I did it again!

This past weekend I ran my 4th 5K. I ran in the Mad Dash to the Madhouse. This was the run for the Chicago Blackhawks training camp. I have taken a bit of time off of running since my knee has been hurting and I have been busy with work. I had to run this one without my running buddy. I ran my slowest time, but I was still able to complete the race and enjoy my beer while watching the Hawks scrimmage. Therefore…it was worth it!

Another on my list!

I suppose it doesn’t technically count as “running a 5k ” since I walked, but I still completed a 5k! This was the most delicious 5k yet! We ran in the ghirardeli hot chocolate run. At the end we had chocolates, hot chocolate and amazing chocolate fondue with all sorts of goodies for dipping! It felt great to be out and moving again after taking some time off. I’m walking another race soon but can’t wait to start running them again next year!

I just can't stop

I ran in the Rudolph Ramble this December. This was an 8K, but I only did half because of my injury. I have been recovering well though and I have signed up for my first 5K of 2012 in February!
