I've never done a 5K - I would really like to. I don't even know how to find out where and when they are. Hoping to learn here.

I need to research/register for my June/July/August 5ks... I wonder if its too late in the year to aspire to complete "12 in '12" (12 5k events in 2012).


Is this too lofty a goal for a beginning runner?

Any one interested in being 5k completion accountability partners?
