Hi, TammyLynn. My sister lives in St Augustine, but I live a little over 3 hours south near Lakeland. Fort Frazier Trail - which is a rails to trails - is walking distance from my house. My first 5K was the Senior Games on March 12th of this year and I surprised myself by placing third in my age group with 31:19. I had only run that distance twice before. I started running 3 times a week. I ran my second race, Mayfaire 5K, on May 7th. My chip time was 29:55. Again I placed third in my age group.
I am entered in the Watermelon Series of four 5Ks. The first one is June 4th at 7am. If you google on Lakeland Runners Club you can look at the events they sponsor here.
Best wishes for continued success with your health and fitness goals! -Marsha 2016 days ago

Thanks for the friend add, Tammy. Are you 61 years old and running in Florida? So am I. I have a sister who lives in St Augustine, although I live about 3 hours south. How are things going for you now? Take care and I hope to see a lot more of you! 2022 days ago
