Have you ever walked/run a 5K, 10K, 1/2 marathon, marathon?

I did a 10K last year (while pushing DS in his jogger!), and this year, I'm aiming for a half marathon. It's a great way to stay motivated to exercise and get fit!

  • WOW... I have NEVER heard of a race that allows jog strollers!

    There is a great group of running moms on this site.

    I have done numerous 5 and 10Ks, Ive done about 4/5 halfs, and 2 fulls. Im currently training for a half in jan, and am signed up to do 2 more in 2011. I agree that signing up for a race is GREAT motivation.

  • was it a race or one of those walks to raise awareness or funds for a cause?

    If you need a good half marathon training schedule I can pm you mine.... it is VERY basic starting out with only 3 miles.

  • Can't say I have. I almost 30 and already have ad knees. That would kill me.

  • Had my assistant take me on a 10K sponsored run/jog/walk in my wheelchair for charity last summer. Thinking about a half marathon next summer if we can.
