LR Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K and 5K

Several of us are training to run, walk, or "rike" the 2013 LR Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K or 5K. I thought it would be fun to create a meetup to encourage each other during the training period and get each other through winter exercise. The LR hikers I'm doing the marathon with are doing early start (6am) because we plan to do a good bit of walking in it. The regular start of the marathon is 8 am. See the web site to register and for more details on the 5K, 10K, half marathon and marathon:

    Hope everyone had good runs/hikes or rikes yesterday! We mostly stayed with club member Susy P's mom Elaine, who was graciously pacing the 6 hour early start group. For those thinking about doing their 1st marathon, I highly recommend the training program on the Little Rock marathon web page. The pacers make it so fun and helpful.

    Don't think I can manage the run, but the walk part sounds great.

    Is anyone planning on walking the 10k instead of running? If I run 10 yards I'm totally exhausted, but I can easily walk 10k...

      Its mostly full marathon participants that do the early start - so those who mostly walk or run very slowly (me) can finish about the same time as the average run/walk participants who do the 8am start. Its really cool to be in the "lead" for a few minutes after the regular start and feel the breeze as the Kenyans run by you.

    I am signed up for the 5K, it will be my first 5K and I'm excited (and nervous). I am working with my sons school and helping them with their Lil Rockers program too. If anyone wants to prepare from scratch with me lol!

      I'll be pretty much starting from scratch, too. I ran a mile the other day and wanted to die.

      I downloaded an app on my phone .... couch to 5K .... that has you run for a couple of mins, walk a min, run a couple of mins, walk a min, anyway each week it increases your run time and decreases your walk time! It sounds great .... I just need to get out there and do it now!! lol
