I have a race on Saturday. It is a race I have been working very hard on…as part of the organizing team. I’ve never been involved with race organization before and it is a lot of work. But, I’ve enjoyed it. I hope that we have a good turnout. This race is part of what my community is doing to honor our fallen firefighter. You can find more information HERE, including how to register.
I always look forward to this event. This is my 4th year running it. When I first started running, my goal was to finish the 5K. I remember being there that first year. It was unseasonably cool that morning. I was nervous because I had never run a race before. Then, I started running into people I hadn’t seen in years. Everyone was so happy and encouraging. I ended up doing so much better than I had anticipated. And when I was done, I swore that I would NEVER run another race ever again. (ha, ha…I guess I didn’t follow through on that threat)
This year, we are expecting a larger than normal crowd. I am excited to see everyone there. I think it is amazing that the community is coming out to support this family and participate in something that Jamison enjoyed.
As for my race, I am doing the 10K this year. I’ve always done the 5K race, but Tim wanted to do the 10K this year, and I had originally thought that I could use it as another PR attempt. My last one didn’t go as planned, due to some unrelenting heat and humidity. I would love to try for another PR, but I think I might wait and see what the morning looks like. The race starts at 9:00, so it could be pretty warm.
If you are looking for a race on Saturday morning, I would love to have you come out and join us.
