Tomorrow’s my first race!!!

16 10 2009

So, tomorrow morning is my very first race. Well, not exactly my first. I competed in a 5k walk in 2004 in Vicksburg MS. It was the Over The River Run/Walk. I placed second in my age division. Kinda cool. Well, I set out in the morning to Hollywood Theater on Dowlen Rd in Beaumont for my first 5k run. I’ve done all the research on what to expect and gone out and bought some new running clothes. I’m SUPER pumped about it, but I got butterflies a few minutes ago.

What will it be like? How many people will be there? Will I be able to finish the race? Will I be able to run the whole time, or will I have to take some walking breaks? How will I place? Will I be cold? Will the boys behave for Mommy? Will we win the raffle for the playhouse? 😀 I guess we’ll find out…

I can say that I got so excited about the race that I signed up for the 5k race on Thanksgiving morning. There’s another race on New Years Day that I’ll sign up for. My hometown of Vicksburg, MS has an awesome 10k on March 6th. It’s a race through the Military Park. I CAN’T WAIT for that one! Bottom line, after 34 years, I think I have finally found my sport that I love!!

Here’s to a great run in the am!
