Column - Ten lessons learned from running a 5K

Email News Alerts

I ran in a 5K race in Fargo last weekend.

Notice I said "ran" instead of "competed" because that's a more accurate description of what took place.


Actually "ran" isn't quite the right word either. "Jogged" is more fitting.

But even though my time - just over 37 minutes to complete 3.2 miles - wasn't the speediest, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
