It’s been about 4 1/2 months since I last ran a 5K race. And, it’s been a while since I have been about to run 3.1 miles without stopping – probably close to three months.
In any event, there’s a race coming up in about 5 weeks that has caught my eye. It’s only about 25 minutes from my house. And, it’s on a Sunday! (Part of the reason why I don’t try more 5K races is that they always seem to be on a Saturday, by us, and, we always have family plans on Saturdays – especially with my son’s sporting events.)
There’s really no excuse for me not to try this one – sans my fear about not being able to run the whole way. I am starting to really think that I should try it – to push myself.
