I plan to join my daughter in a 5k organized run. This has been my motivation to run every other day, rain or shine, and the timing works out that w9r3 will be the big event. If all goes well, I should be able to run 30 minutes, but that won't get me to 5K. I know that once I slow to a walk it's hard to start up again. Do I try to keep running and walk the finish line, or walk early on with a plan to run the remainder. I need a plan. I'm a female, late 50's desk job reformed couch potato, so finishing this race with some sort of style means a lot to me.
