I am going to be running the NAMI 5k tonight. I didn't think I was going to be able to do it, but let's just say Nixa Running is amazing and the best running group EVER! I am very excited about doing it. This will be my first 5k with the group in my Nixa blue! I am not going to go for a PR. I know I could get one because I have improved so much, but I have a 10 mile run in the morning. So I promised that I would not kill myself but just have fun with Nixa.
One of the cool things about this race is the Team Award. We are going as Nixa Running, and I think we have it in the bag! I am sure we will have tons of fun pictures later!
I was talking to my Mom last night, and I mentioned that I was running a 5k. She started laughing and ask me if I realized what I said. I didn't know what was funny about me running a 5k, and then she pointed out that at the start of this year I trained for 3 months for my first ever 5k. I also made a Facebook group and invited everyone to it. I talked about it for all those 3 months like it was a marathon. I am pretty sure I carb-loaded the night before my first 5k. It was a big deal. Now I am just mentioning to her in passing about a 5k I am doing. That is pretty cool. It shows me how far I have come. I never would've thought I would be running 3 miles for fun. Not only am I running 3.1 miles tonight, I am running 10 more in the morning at 6 am. Who wakes up at 4:30 am on a Saturday to go run... THIS GUY!
Have a great weekend! Anything fun planned for tonight?
