I am getting ready to run my first 5K in two weeks and I am wondering what I need to take with me and if there are any tips anyone has on getting prepared.

Congrats on your first 5K. You really don't need to bring more than your running clothes and shoes to a 5K race. I wear a Garmin GPS to track my own time but it's not necessary. Just get out there and have some fun. And remember, when you are getting ready, dress like the temperature is about 10 degrees warmer than it actually is because you will wam up quickly when running. GOOD LUCK!
