My plan is to finish the Frank to 5k program and then launch into round two with no pause. The second time that I do the program, I will be doing it on the treadmill mixed with morning beach running. The SoCal even takes place on October 20th and 21st. That give me about 14 weeks until the event. I am on week three of my first round and, barring setbacks, I'll finish in another six weeks. If I start up again with no pause then it'll take me a total of 15 weeks from now to be running on treadmills/outdoor surfaces. Even if I am one week short of goal when this event happens, I'll still be conditioned enough to finish the race. I'm not expecting to finish as a survivor, still I'll have a notch on my belt for running a race. There will also be swimming, climbing, and other obstacles involved so it's not a true 5k race but it's still an experience I'll be proud of! I will keep you posted on this as more details become available!
