5 Miles [Not 5K :)]

For those still following my preparation for the “Great Aloha Run” [8.15 miles], I am up to 5 miles now. I should admit that I don’t run that distance in a stretch. I walk for a couple hundred meters in the middle :). I am hoping to gradually increase this distance and make it for the D-day. Any suggestions or links for helping with the preparation? Not to boast, but I did loose a couple of inches around the waist :).
