Run A 5K During Your Vacation - Fun Vacation Idea
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

On the subject of training for a 5K road race to lose weight, why not run a 5K during your vacation? It would be a fun vacation idea because it will involve family and perhaps friends who will cheer you on. You could sign up for a 5K during the beginning of your vacation, so you would not have to be bogged down with running the race at the end of your vacation. As something fun and interesting, see what road races will take place where you want to vacation.

Many long distance runners make vacations out of running their long road races. There are not too many marathons, so marathon runners must do a little more planning in order to compete in a marathon. There are also a lot of really cool marathon that have beautiful courses, but we are getting a little ahead of ourselves. Conversely, 5K runners can pick an arbitrary weekend during the summer, and there will probably be at least one 5K to run. So you can take a page of their book and book a 5K race for yourself!

Road races at vacation destinations often have exciting themes for their races. If you are lucky enough to run a 5K during the same time as a longer road race, you will also be a part of the hoopla. Quite a fun experience to share with your family for achieving your weight loss goals!

With your newly christened lifestyle, extend it to your vacation by signing up for a 5K road race. It will only last for a few hours, so you will not have to set an extended amount of time aside for it, and you family will be proud of your accomplishment. I am sure with a little convincing, you will soon have a new running partner!
