Last week, we kicked off a two-part series all about getting you ready for your first 5K. We covered how to pick a training plan and how to cultivate the best mindset to set you up for success in part one, and today, we’re diving deep into the nuts and bolts of actually getting trained for your race!
If this is your first 5K, you’re probably feeling overwhelmed and nervous, but Rebels, as always, I got you. I’ve created a Master Checklist of everything you’ll want to keep in mind in the days leading up to your race and on race day, so you can leave your house that morning feeling full of excitement and confidence.
Join me this week as I share my best tips for following your training plan to the T, even when you don’t want to, the logistical aspects to consider as you get closer to race day, and my etiquette tips so you can run your own race and cross that finish line in high gear!

Rebels, I want you to help me celebrate 200 episodes of this podcast! I’m challenging you to run or walk a mile on June 10th (the day the 200th episode drops), take a picture of yourself with a sign saying you’re celebrating 200 episodes of the podcast, and then post it on Instagram with #NYAR200! I’ll be collecting all the pictures and putting them into a video to celebrate with you and all the other women who have become runners since we started this show!
