Made a spur of the moment decision and signed up for a 5K this coming Saturday.
I haven't raced in a while, and just felt like I might be out of touch with the event frame of mind. I'm kind of a loner, although friendly enough once I get out there around people. I was thinking that marathon training would be enough to keep me going, but in retrospect, I probably am missing the feeling of togetherness I get from race participation.
Another reason I wasn't really inclined to race a shorter race is due to the weather. I'm pretty sure that heat affects me more than the average runner, perhaps because of my age. But, I really feel great running in cold weather. Hot weather is great too, I love a challenge, but I just don't run as well. I've read that some people are not really affected by heat, they run just about as well, speedwise, though it doesn't 'feel' as comfortable for them, they still run as well. But, I'm digressing a bit here. The point is, if I am going to be timed I want to see good results. Darn male ego thing, I know.
So, I've signed up and will let you all know how I do.
