Umm, I signed up for another race.

About a month ago I was talking to a friend of mine and she asked if there were any races when she was home on vacation early August. So, I looked up what was going on and found one that would work for her. Then she asked me to run it with her and I said yes, of course!

Though I hadn’t planned on running any races in July or August, I couldn’t say no to her. I rarely get to see her so it was a golden opportunity.

Right now, I am focused on my half marathon training and this race fell at a good time in my schedule. I made a few changes to my runs this past weekend to allow for a 10k long run on today. {Monday’s a holiday here and my last day of vacation}.

I still have to decide on what shoes I am going to wear! My {new} New Balance or my trusty Asics ….decisions, decisions.

Asics or New Balance ???

New Balance or Asics ???

Goals for my 10k:

A: Best Case or Ultimate Goal: New Personal Best under 57:17

B: Race Day Goal: Under 60 minutes

C: Almost Guaranteed Goal: Finish the race and have fun with my friends.

It’s a flat course on a gravel trail which is going to be a nice change to running on the road. I’m unsure if there are any hills or inclines … basically I’m doing this course without knowing it. I know a number of people running it which is also kinda fun πŸ™‚ I’m looking forward the run because this race hasn’t been my focus the last two weeks so I’m hoping the pressure is off and I just have fun.

Don’t get me wrong, if I can push it and get a PB…I will …wouldn’t you?

Happy Monday!

Anyone race this weekend?Β 

Check me out on Instagram for updates πŸ™‚
