Hey. I'm running my very first 5k, and its advised to have a mantra. What is a good mantra? I'm overly excited.

A really good playlist helped me through my first 5k. Don't use the ones you always run to..something totally new because it keeps you guessing on what the next song is....

Also keep in mind that the energy from the crowd will cause you to run faster...

I don't use mantras per se, But I just tell myself that the pain is temporary. After an uphill, there's a down hill. Slowing down (or walking), isn't going to make the pain go away right at that moment anyway, so there's no point in doing it.

This might not be much help. lol
Good luck though, you'll kill it.

I also find visualization REALLY helpful. I imagine something where running is critical. I'm in a spy movie or running for that touchdown pass or whatever and when I do it I naturally run faster without even thinking about it.

Also, theres always that point around the end of mile one where I start to feel a burn where my body is tricking me into thinking I should stop but when I push through it actually gets a little easier. So I try to keep myself thinking about THAT phase and not the one I'm in where I wanna lay out on the street to catch my breath...

I walked a 5k several months ago and the only thing that kept me going was the fact that finishing was the only way to prove to my mother that it was a bad idea and she better not never ask me to do anything like that again.

That and pancakes. Pancakes were my mantra.
