    Ok, so this is probably a stretch, but anyone else here doing the Runway 5K at OSH on Sat the 29th?

    I would be if we were staying that long. I will, however, be doing a bunch of running while there. I've got to run 20 miles on Sunday morning...

    Yes, be sure to stretch before running a 5k. Also suggest cold beer at finish. Glad I could help.

    Always wanted to do that, but it is late in the week, and I'm done by then.

    I was just looking at routes on Strava. Looks like there is an Oshkosh half marathon route. You could tack on 7 to get your 20.
    @Cajun_Flyer I'm not staying that long either. I would otherwise.

    I typically pass on anything less than 30k, but to each his own

    In the past I've just run through the neighborhoods north of the airport, pretty easy grid streets and hard to get lost. But this is the first year we'll be there on a weekend and I'll need to get in a LONG run. Thanks for the Strava suggestion.

    After a week of walking the grounds I don't think my knees could handle a 5k. I will be leaving Thursday anyway.

    Yeah, I don't get in until Tuesday morning, so I'll still have a tiny bit of energy left by then. Well, hopefully.

    I try to get one long run in a week. I'll check out the half route on Strava.

    I'm pretty sure those are conflicting plans. You can't do both at the same time.

    God only gives you a certain number of heartbeats are you really sure you want to waste them on running? :)

    Please tell me that your use of "wimmin"is satirical. If so, this is brilliant.

    Maybe. I might have my niece, so it would be a walk in that case.

    I'm gonna bet you'll be wiped out after your first Airventure. Much excitement, socializing, and walking. But you're young. Be sure to let us know if you did or didn't. More power to you.

    There's a really good chance I'll give it a go, but my guess is it will take me close to 40 minutes to do the whole 3.1.

    Good news. 65 degrees in Wisconsin is much easier than 100 in Texas. Now where's the 5K tent?

    Looks like anyone who has not yet registered can do so before the race kicks off (7 am, Saturday) at the Ultralight Barn.
