Iím really excited and nervous about my 5K tomorrow. Itís my Bark In the Park. First one Iím EVER doing. Iíve wanted to do it for years, but I couldnít have walked it before last year and I missed the registration last year.
I picked up my packet last night. The girls were really sweet and there was a Jack Russell at the table. Guess Iím in the top 5 for fund-raising (yeah Kitty). I didnít feel like I did as well as I could have but the girls at the table were impressed. I have a new fleece to run in! Just being with them last night I got really pumped up!
But see, Iím also nervous about this run. Iíve been fighting a cold all week. When you pair that with my allergies and my nose is non-functional. Itís also supposed to be cold and rainy tomorrow. I know my time doesnít ďreallyĒ matter, but there is that competitive part of me that wants to do really well for my sponsors. And the puppies, always for the puppies.
I have no idea how Iím going to dress. I think the tutu is out for the rain. Shame, Iím picking one up for Tazzy tonight that would have been a delight. I donít think Iím going to take her now. She couldnít run with me anyway, only walk. I had a friend who was going to walk her but I canít expect her to go in the rain. And I'm really not certain how she will handle the strange place, no mommy, rain, and so many other dogs. Guess, Iím on my own, and that will be a first too.
Iím still running and I know it will be fun. Maybe Iíll try to bribe the hubby into coming with by offering to go to China town for lunch. He NEVER says no to Lao Sze Chuan. I can do a veggie or tofu dish there. The sodium will be a killer but the calories are not as bad as other places. I know this is counter-intuitive to my blog yesterday but I' m concerned that my anxiety might act up if I'm alone in a huge crowd. And it is going to be a huge crowd from what I've been told.
