If you are a runner, it doesn't matter how far or how fast. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run." J Bingham
Running a race with a timing chip is a good thing. The races I've run have all done the timing chip thing, and it really helped me monitor my progress from race to race. With the chip timing, I was also able to see where I was in the standings of my age group, overall, and among women who ran the race. Definitely some handy statistics.
Have you been running regularly prior to this 3 day break? If so, you should still be in decent shape. I wish you the best and am looking forward to hearing what your results are! :)
Have fun. I did two 5K in October. I'm going to do a Turkey Trot/Prediction Run on Thanksgiving. Getting excited! Now, beginning to think about finding a run closer to Christmas. Cindi

I signed up for the Santa Hustle yesterday. This will be my second official 5K. This one has individual "timing" on the bibs - whatever that means. I don't know much about the racing system yet - my first race was a good experience so hopefully I'll learn how all this works.
I have two weeks to get ready for Santa Hustle, and I've been sitting on my rump for three days now. I really need to figure out what has happened to my motivation. I'm just not caring right now and I can't find a reason. I thought the race would be motivating but I'm still just sitting here.
