My First 5K November

My First 5K in November is:

3rd Annual Taking Strides for Our Cause 5K for the Saugus YMCA.

The race is Saturday, November 8th at 9AM at the DCR’s Breakheart Reservation in Saugus. Anyone who has run through Breakheart knows about the killer hills. I think there are 5 of them, but there seems to be a new one each time I run through the park.

runner, track, omni runnerThis will be my 5th in a series of 50 5Ks that I plan to run before I turn 51.

I’m not going for a PR or to place in my age group. Breakheart has a series of killer hills that I’ve run many times.

My experience on those hills will be helpful in avoiding an injury.I know where I can run hard in the park and where I need to use caution.

Are you running any races this weekend? Fall is a great season for running and racing with many races of all distances every weekend.

If you are looking to run your first 5K, this is a great time of year to give it a go.

Run well my friends,

    Paul, Have a great race. It looks like it’s going to bit a little nippy this morning. I guess we better get used to it.
