9 Tips for Running Your First 5k
Surprise, surprise! This was a post I had put on my planner agesssss ago, before the thwarting COVID decided to cancel loads of races.
BUT. There are now races cropping up again, and all of these tips will still apply to virtual races as well. Since I think running a 5k is such a great goal, I still wanted to write this for anyone currently working up to a 5k race.
So if you’ve found your way to this blog post, rest assured: these tips apply to 5ks in all shapes and sizes. Whether it’s a multiple day event of mini-races, soft start, virtual run from anywhere, or the regular mass start, these 9 tips will be more than helpful for running your first 5k race.
