Its almost that time of year where I start posting incessantly about the Pecan Festival. I LOVE the Pecan Festival. I plan to run in the “Run Like a Nut” this year... currently debating between the 5k and the 10k. You have PLENTY of time to train for the 5k if you start today. I recommend the “Couch to 5k” program.
I am considering the 5k because Flossip boy has expressed interest in running and he might want to do it with me. That would be very cool.
However, the 10k would be better for my training purposes– I NEED a goal. Otherwise I get all lazy and don’t do anything.
Lets all run like nuts together!
|Run like a Nut is 3 races.We are offering a half marathon, 10k, 5k and 1 mile fun run for kids. The courses are very flat and fast as it winds mostly through median divided, established neighborhoods near downtown Florence. The run is part of the Downtown Development Corporation’s Annual Pecan Festival. The presenting sponsors this year are Palmetto Infusion Therapy and Fitness Forum. The race kicks off at the Fitness Forum, 2 blocks from downtown, so the participants can use the locker room facilities and walk directly to the festival once the race is concluded. There is no fee for the festival. T-shirts guaranteed to all pre-registered runners and awards to top 3 in each age group.|
