My first 5k tomorrow - nervous nelly here

Friday, April 08, 2016

Our first 5k is tomorrow morning and I am feeling nervous I have done the distance, but still worry a little bit about being close to last Jason is going to run ahead and I know that he is going to finish close to the top I would not be surprised if he doesn't get a medal for his age group. I think part of my nerves are about us being at the same event yet separated I'm guessing he will finish about 25 min and I figuring about 55 for me. I made us index cards with each others bib numbers plus DH (or Dad)'s contact info. Jason is rolling his eyes at me tonight.

Positive thoughts for us tomorrow and I will follow up with a post 5k blog.

    When the family runs together I'm always the last one in ... So before the race we designate a meeting location for afterwards. It will all work out!

    Good luck tomorrow! I remember my first 5K like it was yesterday. I ended up walking a lot more than planned but it started me on my journey to a 10K, then a half marathon, a full marathon and eventually a triathlon! You got this!

    I did my first in February. I'm slow as well. I'm 57 years old. You CAN do it! Remember you are beating everyone that stays on the couch. You will be amazing!!
