Big Race This Weekend...

Ok... kinda... not really. Down at Pacers Running Store in Silver Spring... the 1st annual Earth Day 5k is being held on Sunday. Though not a big deal... it's only a little over 3 miles... I am making it a big deal. I said no goal and no expectations for Sunday... yeah right! The best day would be under 23 minutes... an ok day would be under 24 minutes... and to be acceptable under 25 minutes. I've been feeling a little weaker than normal in my running so we'll see. Should be fun though... gonna get to go up against all my Pacers buddies!

More to come...

Good luck! Just remember to enjoy the day...no goals, right?

Oh man! Best of luck to you! 5K's are so scary for me. Run til you puke.

This Pacers buddy will be taking it easy -- at least as easy as you can take a 5K, which is short enough to carry SOME mandate to get your butt in gear. Relax and have fun! (http://www.examiner.com/x-8091-DC-Running-Fitness-Examiner)

hey there:

I am not sure which marathon yet: perhaps chicago, or something else. I am putting off on deciding until Sept to be sure I am completely healthy (i believe my times will allow for a priority spot at chicago so i can hold off on deciding). Its going to take a long time. Or else I will do Austin and try for an OT time. we shall see! good luck!
