Tomorrow morning at 7:30 I will be running in my first ever competitive race. I will be running in a 5K (3.1 miles) in our church's 14th Annual Alert Road Race. This is something that they started years ago as a fund raiser for our youth group and every year it has grown bigger and bigger! I am exited that some of my friends are running with me. Or maybe I'm running with them? Either way, my goal is to finish. Without walking or stopping. And I hope to finish in under 35 minutes. I've run 3 miles a couple of times before in "training" just to prove to myself that I could do it.
It may be raining. It may turn into a mud run as we are running part way on pavement, part way on country roads. Should be a good time!!
Teresa, the gal who's putting this together (and does a fabulous job every year!) posted pictures of the trophies and awards and the T-shirt design on Facebook - here they are:
There's still time to join in the fun - you can register in the morning, the race (10K and 5K) starts at 7:30 and the 1 mile fun run/walk begins after that! Breakfast will be there... :)
