I have never been so excited about a 5k before you guys! Normally, I’d much rather run a 10k+ so I am selective with 5ks. The one I’m about to tell you about could NOT be turned down! There are a couple of reasons.
The National Press Club 5k is actually one of the first organized runs I ever did. Despite having run my first marathon in 2008, I had probably only done 2 other organized, official runs. I feel like when I did the NPC 5k back in 2009, it was right when my love of running really started to pick up.

Michelle and I ran it and it was close to our hearts because we both studied Journalism in college and were still fairly new to our journalism careers here in Washington, DC. The Press Club is a legend in this city. This is where the dirt was dished. If you read legendary reporter Bob Novak’s biography (AMAZING inside look at the scene!), you’ll see lots of secrets were exchanged in this historical building.
As an intern with the National Journalism Center in 2006, I had a free membership to the press club and would often go enjoy coffee in the morning or drinks in the bar on Friday nights. It was very cool for an intern!
