Tomorrow I’m running another race. This one is just a 10k. I can say “just” a 10k after what I put myself through last year. I’m saying a little prayer that my legs hold out – they’ve been pretty sore this week, with no real reason. Maybe I’m just getting old?
The Hot Chocolate 10k claims to be the flattest 10k in Asheville. They might be correct, but they should also add that it’s one of the ugliest races – it runs down Riverside, which is not a place I would run by myself. Thankfully I’ll have 799 other runners around me to make sure I’m safe.
The main reason I’m doing this race is for the shirt. It’s supposed to be pretty cool. Fingers crossed….I need a pretty race shirt (it’s a cotton shirt, so not a real running shirt. Cotton is bad to run in.) Oh, and runners get socks. That’s pretty awesome, right?
So. Another Friday night spent getting ready for another race. One day I’ll be cool and actually go out on Friday nights!
