well, i set a goal to take part in a 5k. tomorrow’s the big day. i know i’ll finish, alex and i have run this distance for a while now, i just want to run my best possible time. i’m turtle slow so it’s not like i have some huge PR (personal record) to set. since this is my first there’s no real pressure.
earlier this week we ran into a little hiccup. the 5k we have trained for (and mapped/run the course) was canceled due to a lack of permits for road closures.
good thing we live in atlanta and there are 15 races on any given weekend. we choose a race right by the river where we lived for the past few years and allegedly it’s “flat and fast.” this is good because our original race was about 2/3 uphill. i’m sporting a new pair of livestrong shorts in hopes that lance armstrong’s ties will motivate me tired legs.
wish us luck!!! 🙂
