Training for Baby: Running, walking, crawling my first 5K

Posted April 26, 2011 8:18 p.m. EDT

I signed up to do my first 5K and I have to say I am a little afraid.

My husband and I are proud members of Team WRAL in this year’s 2011 NC Triangle Race for the Cure. (You can join Team WRAL, too. Just check out ).

We will be doing the Fun Run, which can be run or walked or in my case – crawled.

I am not a huge runner. I can walk all day on the treadmill, but when I go for a run around the block I always feel more exhausted!

Have you ever run a 5K or half marathon or entire marathon?

I need all the tips I can get!
