My First Race - The Rescue Run

Are you new to running?  Let me tell you that first 5k is going to hurt!!  That pain is just a blip on the timeline and is very short lived in the grand scheme of things.  So, get past that hurtle and keep running, it gets easier and the pain is less.

The Barkley Marathons: Everything I Feared and More
