5K This Weekend
So far so good after my 3 mile run yesterday. I still have a few 'twinges' here and there, but I'm hoping that it's all ok. I go back to the dr in a couple of weeks for a followup.
But I'm running a 5K this weekend with someone who is doing their first 5K. I'm looking forward to it. I pulled out my old running log and looked up my first race ever. It was October 2002. And I was surprised that my first 5K resulted in a 28:xx race. I was definitely much slower (and older) when I came back to running after I had Lil Man.
This race on Sunday isn't about 'time' at all. I'm running it for the pure enjoyment of running a race with someone who is experiencing their first race. I hope my foot holds out. If it doesn't, the agreed upon deal is that she is to go on ahead of me and finish her race. If all systems are go, our plan is to run it together.
I'm looking forward to it.
