Happy New Year! This is my first post since before Christmas. With three jobs and the holidays I didn't get any time to write, but don't worry, I did work-out! :)
I just signed up for my first race of the year. I am very excited and feeling hugely motivated! It is a 5k and is on February 26th. It is called "The Hope and Harmony 5k" and most (if not all) proceeds go to helping cancer patients get the treatment they need. I figured that if I couldn't be motivated to run for myself, that I would definitely be motivated to run for those who can't :)
At the moment I am running a 5k at approximately 00:32:00. The last 5k race I ran, I finished in 00:34:44, so I have improved slightly. I would love to be able to complete this race in less than 00:30:00. I have over a month to work on my time, so I am hoping that this is a realistic goal. I will have to run the entire 3.1 miles at a 10 minute mile pace or better. So fingers crossed :)
There is a 4 mile race on February 6th that I am trying to decide if I'd be ready for. But as of now, I am not sure. I would like to run more than 4 races this year but I guess there is no need to do them all in one month. But we shall see :)
I hope everyone is starting their 2011 off on the right foot!
