...and I'm by no means an avid runner. In fact this would be my first race. I can run 2 miles pretty comfortably, so I think I should be ok, but I have visions of people either pointing at me and laughing, or tripping and falling and causing a disaster with other runners, like Simon Pegg's character in "Run Fatboy Run".

Someone please reassure me that I won't make an ass of myself and that I will not in fact fall over and die halfway through the race.
