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!
