How are you training for your next race?

12 Jan
I started jogging in parks in NJ last Spring mainly to try another way to get physically fit as I've been going to the gym, in-line skating and playing raquetball for over 15 years. I ran 2 5k's in Sept. and loved it. Now I want to take it up a notch and do a 10k.

I'm training for a 5K. It's on Sept 23rd in LA. Out team is in training for AliveandRunning.com, a race to prevent suicide. Great cause and a moving but fun event. If you're in the area, check it out.

I just run as much as I can. As I'm losing weight it's getting easier. I just finished The Color Run last weekend, and my next is the Warrior Dash on August 10th.

I have a 5k mud run I'm getting ready for... Practicing by running at least my 5k 5 days a week and 2 of those days are in soft sand. This will be my first mud run EVER!!! I'm nervous :D

I know exactly what u mean. I ran 2marathons was in excellent shape. My wife and I were blessed with twins so I had the first year with limited running time. Now am training for Philly marathon in Nov. it has been a struggle to say the least in getting back in shape

My daughter and I just finished "Run for Your Lives"... It's a 5K obstacle course/mud run with zombies chasing you!  Sort of a 5K wind sprint!  I spent much of it walking and panting after sprinting from zombies but I made it to the end and "lived" too!  Hope you enjoy your first mud run Linnzi!

Manually track here... Love Skimble community... But nothing better than Runkeeper Elite for running app.  1/2 marathon trail race @end of this month and ToughMudder in October.
