First 5k

Thursday, July 09, 2009

Well, I have finally signed up for my first 5k this coming Saturday. I guess in the interest of full disclosure, I should say Beth (my wife) signed us up for it. This is something I have been meaning to do for a while, but life has gotten in the way, I guess. I am actually pretty excited about it because Beth is running with me. It should be a really good time, and benefits an organization that works with kids with developmental disabilities (and is also where Beth works).

I'm not doing any specific training for it, as I run quite a bit as it is...but I normally run 2-2.5 miles at a time, so it's a little further than I'm used to. It looks like the course is pretty flat, so finishing shouldn't be a problem. I am guessing we'll take it nice and easy and enjoy the experience. Since this is my first, my goal will be to finish, and finish strong, but other than that I'm not really setting any expectations.
