Run Forest, Run!-j/k! Running a race takes a lot of endurance and practice. The longest I ever ran was 8 miles when I ran long distance for my high school. It took a lot of practices after school for me to reach that number of miles, which one doesn't reach overnight-unless you have been running for a long time. I didn't start running until that year as I opted out of baseball my senior year.
I really don't have much experience in the sports of track and field. However, I love to do cardiovascular workouts to keep my heart pumping to keep physically heatlhy now. I run or do some physical cardio-exercise at the local fitness center at least once a week. In the summer time, I try to go outside and run in a soft terrain as possible (easy on my "bad" knees).
Since, I can't speak much of the sport of Track & Field, I'll let you check these links to speak for itself:
Preparing for a 5K Run:
I ran a 5K for the first time this past month (July of 2004) at Morris' annual "Prairie Pioneer Days". My main goal was to finish strong with no time as a target. I finished 25 minutes (10th of 15th overall; 5th of 6th for the 20-29 Age bracket), which will be my goal to beat the next time a run a similar race. Here are some other potential 5K Runs:
