RISE 'N SHINE! It's the 19th annual 5K Road Race on Friday, September 28th. And when they say "Rise 'N Shine" they mean it! Registration for the 5K starts at 6:00AM and the race begins at sunrise at 6:35. We'll be starting at Kennebec Savings Bank in Augusta and running on the Kennebec Rail Trail. Not only is it "Rise 'N Shine", it's rain or shine as well! It all benefits the Kennebec Valley YMCA.
I've done 5K's before but I haven't run one since last summer. You need to train for this kind of thing. You just can't get up one day and run. If you do, you'll be sorry the next day and could seriously injure yourself.
