This week’s topic is: Favorite Distance
I am torn between two..
I love 5Ks. There are so many to choose from each weekend. I can choose by location, swag, elevation, friends going, AG award possibility, time, scenery, etc.
I also don’t need to really train. At this point in my running, I can go out and run 3 miles and not get hurt.
A 5k doesn’t take a long time and it is easy to fit into your schedule and not take a lot time away from family and friends.
If I am training for a long race, I can use the 5K as a warm up tempo run and add more miles afterward.
- Half Marathon
I love Half Marathons too.
Running a half marathon is hard and it gives you tremendous satisfaction when you finish.
You get a medal. Who doesn’t love bling?
It motivates you to get out the door and run several times each week. It makes you increase your miles.
It gives you an excuse to plan a vacation around a race.
You don’t have to be fast. You just have to finish. It is less stressful than running a 5K.
Happy Running! What is your favorite distance?
