Anyone else thinking about this

I've never ran anything

Anyone can do a 5k. It's not that far. There's absolutely no reason NOT to if you're even contemplating it.

Do it.

You can absolutely prep in 24 days. You'll have adrenaline and other people pushing you to make it on race day, anyway, which will make it one of the easier days you'll have.

I'm doing the 1/2. Missed my long run last weekend, but I'll be there.

I ran the full last year. Cool course, lots and lots of runners at all skill levels. I would recommend it to anyone.

I agree. I'd also say anyone can do a marathon once they put their minds to it. I've run three and have seen all shapes, sizes, and ages - many of them leaving me in the dust.
