Here is a list of pros and cons to running Saturday:
-It's my favorite local race. The after party is fun (because there is beer), it's more challenging than a 5k, and the route is my normal running path, so it's familiar.
- Claim Your Journey will be there! These guys are doing great things for running throughout the state and I would love to meet everyone involved in the movement. Plus, they are giving away free swag.
- Race fees are only $15.
- If I committ to the run, at least I know I'd be burning some calories Saturday morning.
- I have not trained. At.all. Therefore, I would be slow and not even come close to a PR. Also, I would be embarassed of my painfully slow time in front of everyone in the local running community.
- The forecast isn't looking good.
|At least it will be cooler than an average May day in Southwest Louisiana|
I mentioned that the race is along my normal running route, which goes right past the road to my house. I know come Saturday morning, when I see everyone running along, I will be jealous if I'm not out there with them. But, I feel very unprepared.
What should I do? Should I run? Will you come run with me?
