    I, for one, have walk/run several 5ks and would describe myself similarly. Here’s what I’ve observed having worked in this industry for several years.

    A few people walk the whole thing. A few people run the whole thing. But the vast majority of people are walking part and running part. On top of that, everyone is so focused on their own race, that they’re not paying attention to what other people are doing. You’re the only one who will know whether you walked 30% or 80%.

    People who can run the whole thing without walking are often more interested in half marathons and longer than 5ks anyway. In other words, you’ll be in good company with people of similar ability.

    So try not to overthink it too much. Just sign up and join the fun.?
