Packet is picked up and I'm ready to go...
Tomorrow I'm running Move for the Kids 5K down at Soldier Field in support of Lurie's Children's Hospital of Chicago.
I pulled up the course today and it is very familiar and flat.
My plan is to jog down there in the AM and see what my legs can do when the gun goes off. I've only ran one 5K before and that was last March. My time was 23:31, which I was pretty happy with at the time.
Do I think I can run a PR tomorrow? It's a 50/50 chance. I have a year of running under my belt from the last 5K, but I haven't actively been working on speed. I also don't know how big this race will be and how crowded the course will be. At the end of the day, it's not about me. I'm excited to run because it's a celebration of being healthy and active. I am grateful the health that keeps me alive each and every day because there are so many people that are struggling with something I take for granted.
I'm healthy...so I'm going to run as fast as I can.
Anyone else racing this weekend?
