3 Reasons to Try to Run a 5K

By Genevieve Cunningham

Running is a great exercise. Many people love to run, while others do it simply because it’s so good for losing weight and staying trim. Whether you love running or not, if you maintain a running practice, it might be time to take it up a notch. How? Maybe it’s time to run a 5K. While this may or may not sound appealing, there’s no denying that there are some benefits to planning and preparing for a race. If you’re not sure whether you should be signing up for the next fun run, take a look at these reasons to train for a 5K starting today.

It Gives You a Goal

Sometimes sticking with a workout is easier when you have an end goal. It gives you something to work toward and a reason to keep going. Completing a 5K, whether you’re shooting for a particular time or are just aiming for completion, is a great goal. It has a beginning and end date. It has people involved who can help you stay accountable. If you’re goal oriented, this might be the perfect goal to get you started.

It’s a Challenge

If you want it to be, you can make any 5K race a challenge. How? Set some goals. If you’re a beginner runner, you may just want to complete it without walking. If you’re a pro, you may want to try to lower your time. You can make the race as challenging or as low key and relaxing as you want. And that makes it a great way to improve your running game at your own pace.

It Gives You Success

Most people who run can finish a 5K. But have you done it? If not, go ahead and give it a try. Completing something in a race fashion will likely make you feel successful and accomplished. And this sense of accomplishment may spill out into other areas of life. If you need or want something to feel good about, something to give you a little self-fulfillment, finishing a 5K might be just the ticket.

Running really is a good thing to add to your life. It’s challenging and feels good and keeps you incredibly healthy. If you want to take your running game to the next level, start with the simplest of the public races, the 5K. You might gain some big benefit and make running a part of your life for good.
