I'm working towards running a 5K in a few months. This is coming from a woman who can barely run a quarter of a mile. Pray for me!! :)

Brendelwoman, not sure if I'm getting a better workout or not. I mean my muscles in my legs are definately letting me know they've been worked, but I AM walking 10 miles at a time! :wink: They just seem to be super comfy and my feet don't kill me after.

Good luck Emdance! You'll do great, I'm sure!

My workout partner and I are crazy. We have a 10 miler this weekend, a 182 mile relay (6 runners, my legs add up to about 27.1 miles, but I get all the hills) in September, a half marathon in October, a full marathon in November and the Goofy Challenge (half marathon on Saturday, full marathon on Sunday) in January.

I did my first 100 mile bike ride in April, my first 5K a week ago and I'm training for my 1st triathlon in August. Pray for me :)

Good luck, Emdance! It sounds hard as hell but pretty exciting, too.

Kiddylnd, I have the fitflops, too. Do you think you're getting a better workout in them or are they just more comfortable?

City of Hope's Underwear Affair 10K on August 2nd, the Disney Half-Marathon end of August, the MS 150 bike ride in October. I am looking for more bike ones, so I might do a metric in August.

I started running this spring to train for a 5K, then ran a 6K, then a 7 miler last weekend. Next up is a 10K in July and then a half in November! I definitely have been bitten by the bug :)

Gotta take a break from running :( due to an injury so no triathlon like I had hoped. But I will be doing a Century in August.

I'm running the Wasatch Back Relay. 165 miles with 12 teamates each running three legs! It is intense running through the night and never sleeping but a good time. It is this friday and I am so nervous!

I'm not training for a race, but I am training for the Breast Cancer 3-Day (60 miles walking in 3 days time). I just did my first two back to back longer walks this weekend (10.6 miles Sat, followed by 8.4 yesterday) and am feeling my muscles today I tell ya! A contributing factor may be that I am training in my FitFlops, because I love them and they are super comfy! My feet aren't sore like the rest of my body... :pinkribbon:

I'm going to do another 5K in Sept. My first running 5K was in May and I took a month off to let my shins heal so I JUST started running. I've got to work my way back up to where I was!

Nope, I'm studying for the bar exam... now i'm wishing that i had signed up for a race at the end of July to cap off the entire experience. Exercise, however, is the only thing keeping me sane!
