Besides the virtual Trick or Treat 5k, I signed up for my 1st real 5k taking place in Jan, which gives me about 4 months to train. There is a Race for the Cure marathon/5K next month, but since I don't feel ready yet, I plan to volunteer at it instead. My son runs 1/2 marathons and my sister walks 1/2 marathons, so they give me inpiration to try my first 5k, even if I can only walk it.

Hello everybody... I've signed-up for the trick or treat virtual trot :) This will be my first 5k... I'm planning on walking it not running... hopefully after the training I can change my goal to be able to jog 3 miles again...

I believe I shape my future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no man's doing but my own. I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me or I can be lost in the maze. My choice; my responsibility; win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny. No excuses..

"Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired - morning, noon, and night.

I signed up for a 5K benefiting families with children in Cancer treatment. It is called Heroes for Children 5K and is in Plano, Texas on Sept. 24th.

My Sparkbuddy also signed up and we formed our own team called TEXAS SPARKPEOPLE. We have invited anyone who would like to walk with us to join our team. I have also raised almost $100.00 in donations.

I am very excited about completing my first 5K. I am helping people and getting fit...win, win!!!

I'd rather be a has-been than a could-have-been, because a could-have been has never been, but a has was once an are."

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Dear God, please help me to remember that there is nothing that can happen to me that You have not permitted, and that if You have permitted it, You are right with me as I make my way over, under, around, or through it.

This is an ambitious and bold move for me. I weigh almost 400 pounds and can not walk 1 mile yet in on setting so i have 10 weeks to get to where i can walk 3.1 miles(5k)....I know I can do it!

My name is Teresa.

Yes, last Sat., it was a beautiful rainy and sunny day, but wonderful to walk and take time to look at God's beautiful world. Have you taken the time to just look at the blue sky, the trees, and listen to the sounds of the earth...just listen. It's good to take the time and walk to a better me/you.

I may do the 5K on August 13 as an untimed. I am undecided, and probably won't finally decide for sure until that morning.

I am, however, also signed up for one Labor Day weekend. It will definitely be timed.

Signed up and walked my first SP 5K Virtual Walk today. Will try to improve my time: 55min./8sec. this week.

I did a walk/run 5K about 3 yrs ago for the fist time ever registering for a race and took 1st place. I'm not really a runner, more of a walker with bouts of jogging.

Blessings, Bev
