Where are all the other CC5K first timers?
I plan to run it a week from tomorrow! I have run several other 5ks, but am pretty out of shape now and slow as molasses. I hear the CMs leave after 45 minutes, so my goal is to finish before then! I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks for starting this thread!

I've heard it's true. But you can finish when you finish.

Starting C25K today, hoping to run the 5K in March. I've tried running programs in the past without much luck, but I know a lot of people way less fit that I who have used the program successfully, so I'm hoping it will work for me too!
Now to find my iPod so I can get an app to tell me when to run and walk

My DH and I ran our first CC5k in 38 minutes in February and the CM was still there waiting and timing and handing out medals. It was our first 5K, and we had only started running. We plan to do the CC5K on our next cruise in October!! Can't wait!! You should prepare for the heat and humidity as someone else said. It makes all the difference.

I just finished week4 of c25k.
I have already done 2 5k's this year but I have never done the Castaway Cay 5k. I am more excited about this one than the other ones. I am not a runner and I don't really like it. I am registered for the Princess Half Marathon in Feb. My girlfriends have convinced me to run with them. So, I hope this will be good practice.

We're on the 12/15/12 Fantasy and DS6 and I are running the CC5K. It's our first cruise, so obviously the first time on this course. We're very excited!

To those of you who are just training to run your first 5k...YOU CAN DO IT! I am living proof that anyone can. I have a titanium hip and rheumatoid arthritis, and until last July, couldn't even run for one minute without stopping. I started a training program, stuck to it, and in the last 9 months, I've ran 5 half marathons. So, please don't give up! You're body will amaze you if you just stay committed.

FYI, on our August cruise they were strict about age...I want to say it was 12 or 13 and up. My 9 year old wasn't allowed to participate.
