5k No. 2 - Race for the Roses

Friday, April 04, 2008

Well, Sunday will be by second 5k race of the summer. My last race was actually a walk, so this will be the first one I will attempt to run any portion of. Since I finished my walk in just over an hour, this time my goal is to finish in about 45 min.

I'm excited for the race, but also a little nervous about it. Under normal circumstances, I would be totally comfortable with running the amount that I plan (two 8 min intervals and one 5 min), but I physically I've got some obsticles this week. First, I was dumb and jogged on Wednesday without any socks - hello blisterville. Second, I fell off my bike yesterday. No major injuries but, one of my knees is brused up a bit. So, I'm going to just do the best I can, and run as much as possible without hurting myself.

    Good luck on the 5k! I will be there too with 4 of my girlfriends from work. This will be my first race ever. I am excited and nervous! I am signing up for the Cinco de Mayo race and maybe Bridge to Bridge. Good luck and let me know how it goes for you.
