Favorite thing about the 5k distance?

    Last week I had the option to run a half marathon, 10k, or 5k at a local road race. A friend of mine gifted me the race entry, so cost wasn’t a factor. It made me think – what is it about the 5k distance that draws you in?

    For me, it just feels like a distance I can commit to no matter where my training is at.

    I agree with you.
    I know I can complete a 5k. I can go in without much effort or attempt a PR, but either way I know I will cross the finish.
    I haven’t done many races beyond a 5k though. I think mentally I psych myself out on distances longer and get in my own head.

    I’m still working at my 5k but it’s attainable, and for me still difficult enough that I feel extremely accomplished and proud of my body to have completed one! I’m not sure if I’ll ever be a longer distance runner.
