Homecoming weekend is right around the corner, which means fall weather, school spirit, a football game, and of course a 5k road race to start it all off! The race begins at 9am on Saturday, October 11th above the train tracks in front of the Whittemore Center. Coordinated by Campus Rec, the 5k has been a highlight of homecoming for many community members over the years. Campus Rec has a map posted online tracing the running route so you know what to expect.

I have been a runner for at least 13 years. I grew up running track and cross-country, with my mother as the coach. It was so easy to run 6 or 7 miles at practice when I was on a team, but now that I am in college, I get so bored running alone! After only a mile in, I’m looking to run back to my apartment because I notice myself focusing on my burning legs, or my shortness of breath. I think about how nice a hot shower will feel after I’m done. However, running just a mile just doesn’t cut it for me. I feel like I am skimping on my workout.

There is rarely a time that I go through campus and don't see someone running. It is a really easy way to get in some exercise and bypass the crazy rush at the gym. But, for some of us who aren't that great at running or have injuries or even just get bored doing it, there is hope. I have really bad shin splints and want to be able to run long distances and do races, but my shins hold me back. So, when I heard about the Couch to 5k app, I bought it instantly. It is a 30 minute run that you do three times a week. During the run you alternate between walking and running.
