I'm a little late, but I did the 10k last weekend! My time was 1:07:08, which was much faster than I thought I could do it. It was a great experience, and I definitely want to do it again next year.

I'm training for it but mostly at the gym. I use American Family but if anyone is interested I can try other options. Are you looking more to walk or jog/run?

Hey all! Just a head's up that we are trying to put together a meet up for everyone before or after the race! Think about whether you want to try for before the race (maybe bagels at 7:30?) or after- lunch somewhere after the race? And watch for a new thread about it!

and are you ready for the 2nd 5 mile training run? Wow- think how close you are to running the whole thing now!!

Im signed up and ready to run. I did 5.4 miles before the chickahominy YMCA training group came out. They run at 830am and the Sandston Striders always run around 8am or earlier. I ran with my group and I was trailing behind them but I ran the whole time and feel good about it.

The awesome part of this race is there will be people running, run/walking and walking! I've run/walked, and I'm hoping to run the whole thing this time. We'll see. :)

Woo hoo!!!! Lots of Sparkers at the 10k!!

If you are signing up for the race without doing the training team- try to sign up today (12/31) since the price goes up by $5 on January 1.
If you are planning to do the training team you don't have to worry since the price stays the same.

How you do the race is up to you. They do ask when you sign up to put yourself in a category from seeded runners all the way to only walking.

I joined the YMCA training team, but am going to start training early by myself as I am not used to doing any running.
I am doing the Goochland group. Anyone else training there?

I have not signed up yet. I wanted to sign up last year. Some things had came up. I am thinking about signing up for the 2011 race.

Im not doing the training, not close enough. Is it a good race to do. Also? do you walk/run or do u walk or run the whole race.

I'm thinking about it, but I haven't registered get. I am a little removed from the rest of you so meeting up would be hard, but I'd be willing to share/accept strategy and progress with a buddy. It would be my first race. On Sundays I run 5.86 miles (road)in about 70 minutes.

Anyone interested in forming a Richmond Sparks Team for the UM10K? I think it would be a nice way to get to know our team mates and have walking/runnung buddies. Some of us have signed up for some of the YMCA training teams which is awsome. Just share your thoughts and we will go from there!! emoticon
