Tomorrow will be my second 5k race ever! It will be chilly and a challenge, but I am excited to go out there. It is for one of the local Police departments and is called "Run from the Cops"... fun!
I am not as nervous as I was for my first one. I think I am more sure of my abilities to finish than I was last time. I have thought of a major goal... to not have to walk. I know it is a stretch, but I am hoping I can push through. It is up in the air if I will be able to accomplish that or not. I just need to try not to be disappointed if it doesn't happen.
When my friend and I went on our weekly run on Wednesday, I kept apologizing for having to stop for a few seconds to catch my breath and get going again. I had to do it a few times, but it was never a very long break. Just enough to get me going again. I felt bad at the time. However, I need to realize I can't be perfect all the time! I can't always bust thru and do the best. Sometimes I am going to come up short and that is okay.
Lessons to learn yet...
