My schedule over the next week or so is just crazy busy- this whole month is really. It kicks off tomorrow with the Mini Marathon/5k packet pickup and Expo- then Friday is me begging my children to let me get adequate sleep for the race....then I'll be leaving my house at about 5:15am for the race on Saturday morning.
I have created my 'race plan' in my head -how I want to start, how I want to move throughout the race, and how I'd like to finish. I think if I go in this way- I'll do a lot better with the running portions. I think I'll try to do 5 minute run/walk intervals throughout. If it feels really good- then maybe I'll run more of it...
After my 5k- I'll wait for some friends and cheer them on while they do the Mini Marathon this year. Looking forward to sharing a beer with them all afterward! Then later that evening we'll go out for a bit- maybe dinner/drinks. Then I decided to take the next 4 days and go visit family in PA- looking forward to it- but also hope I have enough time to actually pack for the trip.
Driving 7 (or more) hours with 2 kids by myself will be an adventure.
Speaking of kids- there goes the 6 month old one now- sounding my alarm . . .
