With all of these procedures in mind, I would also have to consider all of the steps needed to create a 5k. This includes a huge amount of planning, setting up, cleaning up, grabbing attention to the media, dealing with money, etc. Given all of these from further research, I figured I wanted to start out this process more gradually. That is, instead of creating and organizing a whole 5k race, maybe starting out by volunteering for an annual race instead. That way, I can still gain experience without starting out too big for what I can handle.
As starting out really big seemed really dumb of me, I proud of myself that I went through this process and realized what I'm capable of. My genius hour did change a little bit as I changed my end goal, but my passion and determination has not. I'm happy to know that I failed in the beginning, simply because I now know what I am capable of, and can show more success in the end.
Below is one of the main websites I used to consider what I would've needed to do to create my own 5k race.
- What race(s) may I want to help out with?
- What kind of help would I do?
- Who would I contact to help out?
- How do I sign up to help out?
