I never know how to start these race reports...especially virtual ones. That said, I was honored that I was allowed to sign up for this year's Freeze Your Thorns Off 5K from esteemed blogger, Adam.
That said, my race sucked. In fact, my entire week of running sucked.
The worst part is is that I have no one to blame. The weather set up nicely, I had a great route, etc. I'm just not in running shape. Let me qualify that:
I'm not in 5 mile shape.
Admittedly, I've been away from true running for awhile. 2 runs per week...at most...is not going to cut it if I even want to think about running a marathon for my 40th birthday. I need to get off of the stick, turn off my alarm when it goes off early in the morning and get out there.
I know you all expect witty banter and exceptional writing here at ROATM, but today ain't happening. First things first, 3 runs in a week and I'm back to blogging. Maybe then, I'll have something to write about.
Congratulations to all participants in the FYTO5K and thanks to Adam to setting it up.
