Getting ready for my first 5k!
Look what I picked up yesterday!!
My first ever race t-shirt and bib. Squee! I can’t believe my first 5k will be this Sunday. 2 days away. Holy crap!
Meanwhile, I’m tired of seeing this in the forecast:
I feel like that cloud is laughing at me.
The 30% chance of rain doesn’t make me as nervous as that evil thunderstorm symbol. It’s like it’s waiting to ruin my day. Please please please, if it rains, let it rain AFTER the race is over. Preferably when I’m safe in my car.
I’m feeling *really* nervous because I have no idea what to expect. I don’t know if it’s going to rain or be painfully hot and humid (like last Sunday) or what. I don’t know if the course is going to be flat or hilly, boring or interesting, if there will be people there or not. I don’t know if I can even do it… logically, seeing as how I’ve been running that distance for the last week, I can… but I just doubt myself. I guess I need to do as the bathroom at Luke’s Locker told me:
Who knew a restroom could be so wise?!
I guess I know deep down I’ll be okay. Truthfully, I’m kind of excited at the same time too… my first 5k! Who woulda thunk it?!
On a funny note, the guy handing out the shirts and bibs was saying that if we (my runner friend and I) wanted, we could get into the Chevron Marathon through the charity.. since the marathon is based on a lottery and all, but if you raise a certain amount through a charity you can get in that way too. I laughed, as if I could do a marathon! “It’s okay, you can do the half then,” the guy said. Um… dude I’m not quite sure I can even do a 5k!
Meanwhile, there’s still time to donate! I’ve been raising money for the Lupus Foundation and I’m seriously only $15 away from my goal. If you donate, I’ll run that much faster. Maybe. I dunno. I’ve never done this before. Anyway, click to donate, I would really appreciate it! 🙂
By the way, if you have any tips on what to do/not to do… I’m all ears!
Oh and wish me luck and think happy thoughts for me Sunday morning!
