Not a problem, although I'll observe that I will be traveling a lot this week and perhaps not checking in as often as usual.
For the 5k run, I'd work on:
- use a fast enough shutter speed - at least 1/500th. Check your results in the field and be sure that this is enough. I would think so (I shoot baseball at 1/400th, but it also depends on situation) but as I recall some of your 1/250th shots had clear subject motion artifacts.
- use AF-C and acquire the subject well before you actually take the shot.
- turn up the ISO if necessary to maintain shutter speed.
- practice panning (moving the camera, and part of yourself as necessary) to keep the subject in the AF target.
