Shave Your 5K Challenge

I finally signed up for the Shave Your 5K Challenge hosted by Half-Fast. The basic idea is to see who can shave the most time off their 5K time during 2008, so everyone will run a 5K at the beginning of the year (preferably before March, but he'll accept late submissions) and another one at the end of the year (between Nov & Dec). The winner is the person that shows the greatest improvement.

My stubble time is 44:38, which I ran in April 12 at the Windermere Run Among the Lakes 5K. I've already shaved off 9 minutes since then when I ran the Miracle Miles 5K on 9/27 in 35:38. This won't count for my smooth time, but I'm sure I can shave off even more time in another month. It's amazing to see how far I've come already!

It's a great runner's blog. I love reading his posts. He is a fast runner but has yet to run a marathon. He just decided to recently. I think I found him to someone else's blog when they were battling to beat each other's PRs. It was pretty amusing. You going to join the challenge?

Holly, you may still be able to join. When did you run your earliest 5K? He is giving everyone as long as they need for their stubble time; it just means that the later you ran the first one harder it is to improve significantly before Nov/Dec.

Thanks for routing for me! :)

Glad you joined Mary! It will be fun as is his blog.
