Been Awhile

It has been awhile since I have participated in a 5K race. Lets just say that I am a little nervous. I know it will be HOT. It is Houston in the summer. I am just wondering how HOT! I know it wont be my best race. I am hoping to jog atleast a little, but how far will I get. I plan to use this as a starting point. As most people know I am not a runner. I have completed 2 sprint triathlons so far and the running portion by far is my worst of the 3 events. It is the part I dread the most because I am not good at it. On the same line it has been the part I have been working on the most. I dream that one day I will get up and take off on a run and enjoy the scenery and not feel the aches, pains and shortness of breath. My goal is to run a whole 5k the whole time and not need to walk. I want to be able to run a 10 min mile. Why am I thinking of all this now? I am nervous to see how tomorrow will go, but anxious to get it over with. You have to start somewhere. I am improving my running every day.... or every other day!

Best of luck with your 5K tomorrow. Remeber just easy and steady to run the whole thing the 10 minute miles will come sooner than worries. Looking forward to the report.
