Second and Third 5K's in sight

Saturday, September 03, 2011

Well, I have made up my mind. I will be running in the 7th Annual 5K in Galena, IL. on September 24th. Wasn't sure if I was going to since I was going to be out of town the two weeks prior to the race, but I decided I need to do this. I will just take my running shoes along with me and fit some time in. That's all there is to it. This will be my second one. My only goal is to come in under 38:11 which was my time from my first 5K in July. I will do it!!
The following weekend, October 1st, I will run my third 5K in Ely, IA. If someone would have told me at the beginning of 2011 that I would be running three 5K races, I would have laughed in their face..."Yeah right" But here I am. I have to thank spark people for lighting my spark. It has changed my life!

    When I used to travel more, I would bring my running shoes. I found running in another city to be just so *exhilarating*. Maybe it's exciting because after running around in circles in a neighborhood so familiar, it becomes so fresh and exciting to do it else where. I don't think you'll regret it!

    Oh and congrats on all your accomplishments! I love the buzz at 5ks, have an awesome time with next ones!
