How come racing a 5k sounds more painful and less fun to me than racing a marathon?? It’s a necessary evil though, in my quest for a speedier half marathon time. So in addition to the Celiac 5k (this weekend), I registered for the Brian Kraft 5k on Memorial Day. Ouch. At 22:35, my 5k PR seems very soft – it’s from over 2 years ago. That’s a 7:17 pace. My plan for Saturday is much faster than that. (BUT – the course that the Celiac 5k is on has measured crazy long the past two years, so unless they figured it out and measured it properly, I may have a pace PR, but not an actual time PR on Saturday. Stay tuned).
In other exciting news, I am officially a bad ass Harley rider now. Surprisingly fun!
