Six weeks to go!
Since I live in the home of the Kentucky Derby, of course we have a series of races called the Triple Crown of Running! They include a 5K, 10K and 10-miler that all lead up to the Derby Festival mini-marathon; all races I ran last year. It’s hard to believe sometimes, but I did.
I got an email Saturday morning that says the 5K is just 6 weeks away! I couldn’t believe it, I am so behind in my training. But at the same time, it has given me motivation — instead of focusing on the long race, I am going to use the next 6 weeks to train for the 5K and see if I can beat last year’s time. I think I can!
