Well, if you’ve been following my blog or twitter account than you are well aware that I’m running my first 5K tomorrow. I’ve trained and mentally prepared for my run but I’m still a bit nervous. I’m nervous because I set some goals for myself that I’m not sure I will be able to accomplish. I’m very competitive with myself and have a need to accomplish the goals I set for myself. My goals would be easy for any runner to accomplish but for me they are challenging.
So, what are my goals:
1. Finish the race in 45 min
2. Run the entire race.
Yes, I’m nervous but I’m also VERY excited!!! I’ve wanted to do one of these for a long time and I’m finally doing it and I’m doing it for a great cause. (You can read about the cause here).
Let’s take a look at yesterday’s eats:
1 red delicious and 1 fuji apple sliced up:
and dipped in a teaspoon of heated up Maple Almond Butter:
Very good and filling!
I made my husband and I some Runza’s! You can find my recipe here.
I love these things and they would be good with any type of filling!
This time around I made the filling with ground turkey instead of beef.
A refreshing and simple bowl of sliced up strawberries. I could eat strawberries every single day, love them!
Well, it’s time for me to lay out my stuff for tomorrow race. I want to have everything ready for my early wake-up call.
If you are a runner when did you run your first race? What was it and how did you do?
