Excited about running my first 5 K


Recommended Posts

I've been wanting to do the Diva Dash for the last several years but never actually "prepared" myself, and wasn't sure how to. This year I decided I'm going to do this, no more excuses.

 

I am so grateful to have found this app to help me train for my very first 5K. I actually just completed my first workout today! Whoa! Easier than I thought it would be. Hope I'll still be saying that in week 4, haha! At 52, I'm on my way to a better, fitter and healthier me.

 

It's nice to be part of an online community with people who are all making the same journey. I'm sure there will be plenty of motivation and encouragement along the way. Good luck to everyone here!

As soon as I finished on the forums I googled the diva dash and it does look amazing. that is a great goal to set for yourself, a fun 5k is a great place to start. My first 5k was a color run when I finished the c25k program. Its so much fun and that non competitive atmosphere is the best.

TrishE - I've heard of the ColorRun! They had one last year here in Austin, sometime during the summer I believe.  It seems there are more "fun" runs than ever before, so I will have some choices to make after the Diva Dash.  Maybe the Wicked WIne Run on May 30th where the run takes place at the vineyards and trails of Spicwood Vineyards, and there's wine waiting at the finish line. Yup, keeping Austin weird.

What is Diva Dash?  <--link 

This sounds fun!!  LOL  Their home page motivates me to focus on more core strengthening exercises.  So far, I can't step over a chain easily, (chain blocks entrance near apartments) - I can at the beginning of a workout, yet not after.  I WILL THOUGH, especially as I stay with this.  I'll be 52 in September ... bet I'll be doing a gig over the wire by then.  ;)
