Fearful of my first race of the year.

24 Aug

The weather is turning a bit cooler which means it is time to start the race season and guess who is going to be joining? Me, yep this girl, who only ever does the Race for the Cure because it is for a good cause. But guess what else, my health and my goals are my own good cause so I plan to run in at least five 5ks before the year is over.

Achievable? Absolutely.

First race is this weekend the 28th. Check out the schedule:

Race Day Schedule

Sounds really cool, right? In order to be semi prepared to do this, I plan on jogging 3.1 miles every night until race day. I need to build my endurance up. I do know that this will not get me to a place where I can run the whole thing without huffing and puffing, but it is a good start.

If I complete this and really enjoy it I plan to treat myself to a new pair of running shoes. I “designed” them on Nike’s Website.

What do you think?

Any local Denverites that have any suggestions for fun 5ks coming up?
