2008 Columbus Half Marathon/5K

2008 Columbus Half Marathon/5K

So I run my first 5k in just about 9 hours from now. So what am I doing awake still?

You can’t teach a dog new tricks! It’s before midnight for crying out loud! I don’t usually go to bed before 3. Yes, I will go before then tonight, but I just can’t right now. My body won’t let me. I’ll get up in enough time to eat some Oatmeal and wake my body up, run my race, then come home and go back to sleep! My mom will be there to cheer me on as well.

After rise from my nap, I may treat myself to a trip to the mall. Who knows! Depends how I do! I’ve read up on quite a few articles about how a first timer should prepare and run their race — emphasis on finishing, not time — so I’m not going to stress any time. Having said that, I’d still really like to be sub-30 minutes.

So wish me luck! I’ll let y’all know how it goes when I get done!
