I have to admit I am a bit nervous. I just want to finish in under 50 min. I don't run, but I can jog a study 4.5 - 4.7 mph on the treadmill at the gym. I have also been practicing running outdoors on the street and sidewalks in the neighborhood. My sister said I should do it in under 20 min., but that sounded way too fast for a 5K the first time out. I think she is nuts, because she said she did her first one in 33 min., well la de la for her. She was also about 8 yrs. younger than I am now. So at 55 I will be happy to finish in a decent time. I just hope for a good nights sleep, not to sleep through the alarm and can keep up with my friend Debbie's, 12 yr. old daughter Hannah. Debbie will have my camera to take photos for me. She will hang on to my stuff too. Jeff will drop me off, but won't hang around. My son Frank may come down around 10am for the Flag Day festivities because you get free cake and ice cream. Being a runner I get a free pancake breakfast afterwards, it is $5 for those not running. I will pay for Franks pancakes and he can give me a ride home. I can walk home if not. It is maybe 1 1/2 miles to get home but if I am all sweaty it would be nice to have a ride. LOL. Let you all know the results tomorrow.
