Butterflies... today is my first ever race day!
Saturday, May 29, 2010
This is it! My first ever race day. I finished the C25K program 2 weeks ago and can't believe how far I've come. I was scared to tell ANYONE that I was embarking on this 5k program for fear that it would be too hard and I wouldn't be able to do it... letting it just fizzle out. Now I love telling people that I graduated from the program.
Race kit pickup was Thursday night. What a rush! 39000 people entered in the Ottawa Race Weekend... marathon, 1/2 marathon, 10, 5 and 2k races. I love my (first ever) bib and my (first ever) souvenir race chip! Start time is 5pm so I think it will be a LONG day waiting for our departure for the venue!
And I can't stop smiling!
