    I'm completely out of shape. Yesterday I shoveled snow and realized just how old and rickety I felt.
    I figured if I give myself a goal to work towards I'll get it together.
    My run is in the middle of July. Certainly that's enough time to prepare for an 8k.

    I've heard of 5K and 10K, but never 8K. I think you got ripped off.

    I have coached clinics with the Running Room locally. I was gonna steer you there for one of their on-line clinics, but, it sounds like you have it covered. Good job.

    I buy my shoes at a place with a running club as well. They have a beginners group. I'm getting fitted tomorrow for new shoes and was thinking about asking about their running clinics.
