5K is not so far . . .

Seriously, 5 kilometer is just over three miles.  Three miles isn’t far, right?  You could run three miles, couldn’t you?  Okay, well, I can’t quite run three miles - I need a few walking breaks in there.  I’m working on it though!!  But you could try to run three miles, right?  Or you could certainly just walk three miles, correct?

Still not quite convinced?  What if you ran / walked / whatever three miles AND RAISED MONEY FOR A DIABETES FUNDRAISER??  You’d certainly do that, right?


That's right!  Reyna from Beta Buddies and her sister are organizing a virtual 5K to raise money for JDRF.  All it takes to participate is a $10 entry fee.  Then just walk or run your 5K anytime between June 24th and June 27th and post your name and time.  (If you are slow like me and would rather keep your time a secret, that is fine.  Although I have no shame, I’ll share how slowly I run!!)  Not only is this a great thing, but Reyna and Tara have lined up a bunch of cool prizes that will be raffled off.

Seriously, you want to do this.  It’s a great thing to be a part of.  And you can do it!!  Check out the important details on Reyna’s 5K for 5K post and Tara’s It is GO TIME!!!! Race to Cure Diabetes 5K here we come... post.  And then, sign up!!  We may not be able to run our 5K in the same place.  But knowing we are all running together, virtually, will be a really cool thing.  Knowing the D-OC is with me will really push me to do my best!!  Do I have you with me?


  1. YAY! I love the way you wrote this and the simplicity around how you portrayed it. You are right, it's easy. It's only 5k. Walk, run, race, hobble.

  2. Awesome! I am in. I'll check out the details when I get home tonight.

  3. YOU are the BEST Karen. Great post and great support AS ALWAYS. xoxo. I cannot wait to virtually hobble next to you running/walking.


Thanks for your comment!
