Rain, Rain, Go Away!!! My 5k Walk is tomorrow!!

Friday, January 20, 2012

My first short term goal is to walk in a 5K for charity. Well, tomorrow is the day, but we are supposed to have heavy rain! The charity says the walk is on, rain or shine. I've been doing a lot of walking to prepare for this and am so excited to participate. I have a personal challenge to myself to complete it in under one hour, but I can't do it in the rain! I know I would just be miserable soaking wet, if I tried. My plan at this point is to get up and see how the weather is and then decide from there. I am so hoping the rain holds off or takes a break long enough for me to walk!!

    Ask yourself this......is your plan to wait and see what the weather is like just your old self talking? You set a goal to do this and I bet you wouldn't be the only one out there even if it does rain. I'd hate to see you pass up this opportunity and then kick yourself later for not doing it. I agree with OBIESMOM2, YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!

    I ran a 5k in the snow once. It was so difficult to make myself get back out of my car after I picked up my t-shirt before the race. I didn't have a great run time that day, but I did win in my age group (mostly because other people my age were smart enough to stay home!)

    I've run a few races in the rain too. Some in winter rain. Trust me, you can do this

    Where is your 5k? I hope you have a rain-free event. Rain would be miserable if it is also cold! I'm pulling for you! Let us know how it goes!
