Runners Fail To Qualify For Boston Marathon Due To Route Glitch

Have you ever run a course where it seems like there is NO WAY it's only a 5k?. You run out of gas after what you think is the fourth kilometer. You don't want to check your tracker, but you do. Wait, there's MORE? Is the GPS off? Did it not start on time? All these things run through your head, but surely the event organizers did the proper math. Right?

See Over 800 Santas Running in Germany

Roughly 800 people put on Santa costumes for the Fourth Annual Michendorf Santa Run in Michendorf, Germany. The race is sponsored by Laufclub Michendorf (which translated means Michendorf Running Club, imagine that) and is 10 kilometers long. You can't quite tell from these pictures, but it actually began snowing pretty hard during the race, which probably makes these the most Christmas-y photos ever. Enjoy!

I Finished! I Finished! Best Time Ever!

I DID IT!! I DID IT!! I can't believe it went by so fast!

The Rise 'N Shine 5K Road Race was really over before it began. As we waited at the Walgreens on the opposite side of the circle from Kennebec Savings Bank, we were all cold. Some were stretching, some looping the rotary to prepare. Me, I was just trying to stay warm. It was 38 degrees. Then the airhorn went off!

Training for the 5K

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.
