I'm getting sleeved on July 10th. My SIL is looking for people to be on her team for the Color Run on Oct. 6th, and I have wanted to do the Color Run since I first heard of it. It's not a timed 5k, it's just a fun run. Is it realistic for me to think I can do a 5k at 3 months post-op?
I would say yes! Timed or not, if walking is allowed and you feel up to it....go for it. Usually you can register as a runner and still walk, but you can't register as a walker and run. I walked a 5k less than 2mths post op RNY and have done at least one every month since.
Walking is definitely allowed - I don't even think there's a distinction when you register. Registration is tomorrow and I guess this race sells out pretty quickly, but I'll only be out $35 if I decide it's too much.
