Any tips for a new runner considering doing a 5K (Turkey Trot) next week?

I am a relatively new runner (within the past year or so).  I've never done a 5K before, but am considering doing a 5K next week, Nov. 24. (I just found out about it!)  I currently jog/run approx. 2 miles every morning, so physically, I think I can do it.  My strength seems to be sprint running though, not endurance running, that's why I'm still hesitant to register for the race. I'm just looking for some last minute tips to get myself ready (if I choose to do it!) for race day.  Thanks in advance for your tips/advice!
