Women Run Arkansas 5K: A competitive mother daughter race!

I know.  I did it again.  I said I was done racing until my marathon and then I heard about the Mother/ Daughter Division of the Women Run Arkansas 5K.  How could I resist??

“Just” 5K Training and other stuff…

“Just” 5K Training and other stuff…

I’ve been asked several times what my running plans are now that Boston is over and I’ve often found myself saying that I’m “just working on some 5K stuff right now.”  Yes, obviously 5K training and marathon training are different but I’ve come to the realization that there is nothing “just” about it.  5K training is serious business and is in no way inferior!
