    Personally, I think a 5/10K is fine, so long as you’re sufficiently trained and prepared for it. If you said marathon, I might think you’re a bit zealous. 

    Aside from wearing a number, what’s the real difference between running a race that morning and just going for a run?

    It would make ne anxious. Plus, there’s that early morning thing, but if you can handle that, go for it.

    Omg I would LOVE to do that! I feel awesome after running a race- lots of adrenaline and confidence running through my veins! Go for it!!

    EDIT: You should wear some awesome matching shirt with a cute saying on it… like “Just ABOUT TO BE Married!” or something like that, or even just “We’re getting married today!”

    I wouldn’t do it.  Not only would I probably trip, fall and sprain my ankle, but I’d also be pretty worn out and not able to go all day, then all night for my wedding.

    I would do it but people also think I’m crazy 🙂 I’m doing a race 3 days before my wedding and getting a lot of stick for that.

    I don’t see why not. If you’re a regular runner 5k is nothing.  Just enough to boost energy for the day, not wear you out.  I’d only be concerned if you’re planning to be up really late he might before or the evening of the run.

    @SapphireSun: I agree. A 5K is not going to wear out a regular runner. As long as you think you have time to get ready between the end of the race and when you have to leave for the event, I don’t see why it would be a problem. I think it would also help calm the nerves.

    I’d do it! I got up and went to my regular bootcamp workout the morning of my wedding. Everyone thought I was crazy, but it felt great.

    I wouldn’t recommend it. I was exhausted by the end of our wedding day. I didn’t have to wake up until 9am to start hair and make up with all my girls either. The day is long, and wearing a 10 pound dress for hours is a work out in it’s own.

    I’d be worried about the risk of injury. I wouldn’t want to be on crutches on my wedding day!

    Invite your family and guests who will be there that morning to do it with you!  How fun would that be, a group 5K!  My siblings and most of my bridal party are all marathoners/triatheletes, you could get t-shirts printed for it and have a blast.  If it is an event raiser for a charity even better!  It could be part of the wedding weekend events, give out some funny prizes for the participants from your wedding.

    WHoa.. running is soo great for you but you really take a risk of injury and wearing yourself down for such an important day!! How about doing one right after the event? Good luck!!
