This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

So check it out:

Theyre doing a 5K run at GenCon. Tickets are already sold out but you can show up and run along, which is what I plan. And I will definitely buy a ticket if they make more available. What a cool idea.

That's only 3.1 miles. I haven't done much running this year, (I got injured by a goose! True story...) but I am going to try and work back up to it- did plenty of running in the Army. Here's a pretty good plan for getting your run back on:  The Couch to 5K Running Plan

So my drow LFR adventuring company actually has a banner- a vinyl outdoor-quality woven banner with the house colors on it that we ordered- we often put it up at Gamedays or "away games" when we visit some other venue as a group. I am putting together a new Adventuring Company for GenCon and I thought it would be cool to run with the new banner.

I won't run in costume, (dude, I'll die! haha) but it would be fun with the flag.

Anyone else want to do this? I think it will be fun. Tyranically, of course. As is my custom.

That plan AM linked to is a good one... I used it to get myself back up to speed a couple years ago, though I had to repeat a couple of weeks in the middle.

We could do a RPGsite group and spend the entire run swearing at people and calling them all swine :)

(AM how do you work back up to a 5K run its like the minimum you would start at to work up to something?)
