October is the busiest running month. Today I did my first 5K of the month. It was a certified course and I set my personal best! It's still slow but I am shaving time off as I go and that's what counts. Are you running any races this month?

Hi there macdingolinger Well done you, even if it isn't fast to you, you are still bettering yourself and times so that is important. I don't run at all, I really wish I could but I think I would end up with two black eyes for my trouble, if you catch my drift!!

Yeah, I am my own best competition. I haven't won anything yet and don't really care. I feel good and I feel good about myself as well. As long as i am improving I am happy!! Thanks....

I'm not signed up for any. I'm looking at one for halloween but it's not real close. My next 5K is in Nov.

I have another 5K this weekend. My nephew will be running it with me. IT's the "race for the cure" for bre-st cancer research. Then in November I want to run one (haven't signed up yet) that benefits brain tumor research.

Oh they have one near (sorta) here too that benefits brain cancer research. I was thinking about doing that one. But then I have to volunteer right after that too so that would be a bit crazy.

That's pretty awesome. I got a new personal best at the last 5K I did. And today I did the marathon by bike, but that was the first one I've done so I have no comparison. Still, I did way better than I expected to! I'm doing one 5K this month. I'm hoping to finally beat 30 minutes there!
