I hear the same question every September. It never fails.
“The Friends For Michael 5K is this Saturday, what should I do for training?” I politely reply with a “run a few miles a couple of times this week and don’t go out too hard in the race.” But, deep down, what I want to say is “build a time machine and go back to 10 weeks ago to start training you dummy.”
So my advice to all those wanting to race the FFM on Sept. 26 is to start running now. Don’t put it off. You will thank me when race day finally arrives.
