I used to run 5k’s pretty often when I played lacrosse in high school. Back then, three miles was no problem, didn’t even get out of breath. I fell off the wagon a bit in college when time was short and I had to choose between a run and getting that reading done for class (believe me, the reading-on-elliptical skills you build at Harvard are pretty amazing). That’s why I’m pretty psyched to be running the Solar Empowerment 5k that my company Gym-Pact is sponsoring. The proceeds go toward building energy technology for Mali villages.
