Running Update

I have my 3rd 5k race tomorrow morning. Why am I nervous? I had trouble sleeping last night; it isn't like I'm running to win anything. I think it is all about whether or not I will PR. Actually if I don't crush my last time we have issues, it is really about how much I beat my previous race by.

The temperature is supposed to be a little chilly (38 degrees) at 8 am tomorrow morning. Part of the run is down by the water but luckily that is about a mile in so I should be pretty warm by then.  The goal I set for myself a couple weeks ago was 31 minutes or under but after my run last Sunday I'm thinking it should be 30 minutes or under. I really don't want to set myself up for disappointment though so I think a reasonable goal would be to shave 5% off my last 5k race time. That puts me at 30 minutes and 36 seconds. Turns out to be perfect now that I do the math!

Wish me luck!
