The decision has been made: music!
Hopefully this will keep me going during the tough parts! It’s currently 30 degrees and snowing steadily, but I’m okay with that. Last year’s race was sunny and in the 50’s and I ran in shorts and a t-shirt. I didn’t bring my own water and I remember the water station we ran by at 4 miles had run out (both the 5K and 10 Mile utilize this water station, and the 10 mile uses it twice at 2 and 4 miles). The next one wasn’t until 7.5 miles or so, and it’s all I could think about. Even though it won’t be as hot this year, I’m going to carry my handheld water bottle. One less thing to worry about, right?
Goals for this race:
-Finish! (that’s always the first goal, no matter what race it is)
-No walk breaks
-Beat last year’s time of 1:40:40 (this is the time I had myself at; the race had me at 1:41 something, but it’s not chip timed, so I’ll go by my watch).
The race starts in about 2 hours. Here we go!!
