|See, that blue pile on the floor? Those would be his pants. Apparently, he decided to go pee and then mix up some apple cider cocktails.|
Thank you for those of you that left such nice comments about my article in Sparrow Magazine. For those of you that missed it, it is an article on keeping a running journal. So many of you have shared with me that you'd like to start your own running journal so this article might give you some ideas to get going with that. Please let me know if you do. I'd love to see pictures!
5k and Music
Also, a fun 5k in my near future. I might even dress up in something Christmas related. It is really just a way to for me to face my fears and see what I can do with very little speed work and 5k specific training. I've only raced one 5k since college and that was with my husband last March during marathon training. I've never liked the 5k. In fact, it is a race I dread something fierce but perhaps this will change for me. I'm a different person, a different runner and I'm all about doing things that scare me because it makes me stronger. I have no time expectations for this 5k so that takes the pressure off. I just want to run strong and enjoy feeling fast. I will probably try listening to music for the first time EVER in a 5k and only third time ever for a race. I asked some of you on facebook for 5k music ideas and have received some great suggestions! Surprisingly, I think the harder songs that I usually hate, will be perfect for getting me going. Please share your music suggestions if you have some that you love!
Happy Friday! Good luck to all those racing this weekend. Vegas, California International Marathon, and what else? Who is racing??
