I just might.

For several years, I have wanted to try one of those 5K runs that so many people get into. I know, it seems kind of silly to pay money just to go run with people. But, for some reason, it seems appealing to me.

With the conditioning that I have enjoyed in the past several years, I haven't been able to just sign up for one and, in good conscience, think I would finish without embarrassing myself beyond belief. I have been doing a little training in the past few months, so now I am considering diving in and giving it a go. I was going to say giving it a try, but I want to set you up for a future post about training versus trying, so "try" does not seem appropriate.

The race I found is on July 4th near to where we plan on visiting (Lord willing and the creek don't rise) at the time. So now, all I need to do is find a training plan that will get me ready to race a 5K like a hero in less than one months time. No more progressively longer runs for me for a few weeks, which will not bother me. But, I am afraid I might have to start running faster.

So, wish me well.

Gooo James! There's a good 5K in Bisbee in the fall, though I hear it feels more like a 10K. :)
