I can't believe how good I felt during my run today! 4.75 miles in 48:35.
My first road race (a 5k) is coming up in 10 days and I am going to try to finish in less than 30 minutes. Physically, I am certain that I can do it but I don't know what race conditions will be like. A lot of people enter this race and I am terrified that I may run over someone (I'm not very graceful). I'll just play it by ear and be happy to have passed this milestone. After all, last year at this time, I was 6 gallons larger and smoking like a chimney.
