It’s official – my first 5K is almost here! My friend and I picked up our race packets today, and now I’m really excited. Our packet included one of those horrible fitting team t-shirts that was definitely not designed for someone with boobs and hips. So I pulled out the scissors and got a little creative with the neck, arms, and bottom seam. I’m tempted to shorten it a bit, but I’m not that crafty. It’s much better than it was, but still not great. I’d be much happier wearing one of my regular running shirts. I guess that’s a casualty of running with a team.
Fashion problems aside, I’m really looking forward to the event. I fully acknowledge that I haven’t trained like I had hoped so my only goal is to have fun and get inspired to train for my next race in September. I have a tendency to be hard on myself, but I’m going to try my best to just enjoy the experience and not judge my performance.
As long as the weather improves like it is predicted to, it should be a fun evening. I’ll be back with a recap later this week!
