So I am racing this weekend. Twice. One of the races I have been signed up for since they announced the race, and the other I signed up for on Tuesday, hoping for a little redemption from last weekend, even though this will be no where near the distance. Tonight, the hubs and I are BOTH racing the Little Kings 1 mile, to kick off Flying Pig weekend here in the 'nati.
Bockfest 5K?) I am glad for J that it is a 1 mile this time, as he definitely has not been running at all. He often says, "I really should work out more". But then he works late and works at home and rarely has time for anything! Hopefully once they bring in someone to do his old job he won't have QUITE as much going on and can get back into it for the Hudy in September!
And being Flying Pig weekend, and that race having SUCH significance to me, I needed to be involved in the Pig.
So on Tuesday, I signed up for the 5K. I couldn't help myself. I know without a doubt I can run an entire 5K. There are no questions in my mind like there were before the half last week. Plus, with it being my first marathon one year ago, I really felt like I have to participate, and I hopefully will ALWAYS participate. Since we are the P&G town, there is a Pampers sponsored diaper dash that we might put Addie into next year (haven't told J this yet, but I am sure he has his suspicions that such things are coming!)
So yesterday, I headed out to try and get my run on, just so I felt great about my cardio for the day. I went after work. I made sure that my phone was charged (since I KNOW my garmin is NOT) got dressed and headed out. I wanted to go 4 miles, but I would be happy with three. That was what I told myself when I left my house.
And then I needed to rehydrate. I used a little of my fave...
So I am feeling ready to race. Let's get this weekend on the road!
