I recently participated in a 10K run - pushing a stroller, I might add! If you haven't competed (I use the word loosely) in a local organized event I really recommend you give it a try. I use to avoid such events because I thought there was no way I could keep up and while it's true some die hards sprint an entire 10K, there are many walkers out there too. A girlfriend and I jogged with my youngest daughter (6 months) as passenger. Great way to say "I did it" and change up the regular work out routine:)
All the best,
