Quoting Jenn{+2}:" I just signed up for my first 5k a couple weeks ago. So far I've been walking my oldest to school and ... [snip!] ... and once it cools off, we'll walk home. There is a circle park by my house that I will be running, just need running shoes!"

Yeah I need to get some better ones, mine are from PE in middle through high school, so they are kinda haggard lol

Quoting Mrs. God of Thunder:" If you pay to be a runner, you can come back at one of the later races and be a zombie for free I believe."

On the registration it just lowered the cost of being a runner. Instead of $75 its only $45 to run.

Make sure you either wear shoes you don't mind getting ruined or buy some new ones at Goodwill or something beforehand, because you will be running through mud, water, puddles, etc.

Hmm.. Also, I think the later you sign up, the more the price goes up.

Yeah after Oct. 31 the price goes up to like $80-$90 per runner, so with my next paycheck I am going to register just to get it out of the way lol and then I HAVE to do it lol:lol:

You're most welcome!



I remember waiting for the runners to come through to my section and they were greeted with a giant mud pit... I'm surprised some didn't lose their shoes.

I'll keep that in mind when I go look for shoes. This run is at night, so I'm glad you told me!

At night, really? That'll be so much more creepy. Ours was in the day. Of course, we were on the third set.
