Race on Sunday

I may be running few miles, but some of them are pretty speedy.

I may be short on long runs, but I’m long on full, endurance-building workdays.

I may be short on help, but if I get up early enough I should be able to sneak away for a few hours.

I may not be in traditionally good shape for a 5K, but I think I may surprise myself.

I hope so.

This Sunday our local healthcare system in sponsoring an inaugural 5K in our town. As an avid runner it would be such a shame if I missed this event, just miles from my house.

It would probably help my 10 mile race training more if I took the time to run 10 miles instead of race a 5K, but no matter.

I’m doing this 5K, and I’m not just going to show up. I’m going to run until I can’t push my burning muscles any faster. It probably won’t be a PR effort, but it will be my best.

I opened a new box of Wave Riders a few weeks ago, so even my shoes are ready to go. πŸ™‚

Stay tuned for details…

    Was it today? Hope it went well! I love small, local races – in fact, I’ve just signed up for an inaugural 5K near here too. Love the shoes – great colours!
