That state parks have different length races, it's called the Summer Run Series. They're at like Hecksher, Robert Moses, Jones Beach, Sunken Meadow, etc. You should definitely check them out.

I wish I could be ready to run a 5k by the beginning of June! I was able to run for a whole 1.5 minutes on the treadmill yesterday so I think I am going to have to build up to the 5k goal. It will happen though, I am confident of that.

Thank you for the addition info on where to find races! I appreciate it :)

I can and I will

let us know which one you decide to run!! :)

When we come to the edge of the light we know, and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown, of this we can be sure...either God will provide something solid to stand on or...we will be taught to fly.

Anyone know of any 5k races going on this summer on Long Island? I think I am ready for a goal of that nature to help me stay on track with fitness.

Anyone up for joining me? I'll tell you where I'm at... I ran for a whole 1.5 minutes (at 5mph) on the treadmill today and thats all I could do. But its a start!

I can and I will
