So a few weeks back I registered for the Dopey Challenge at Disney World. It was a pricey entry. I’m still waiting for sponsors to help me out – come on already, you know you want to! Anyway, I’ll write about that later. In the meantime, I figured I’d have to skip other races cause I spent so much on that one entry. But here’s the thing, I’m in a 5k tomorrow. I got a free entry from a co-worker, so that is good. I like free race entries.
It’s the Head for the Cure 5k in Plano, TX. I don’t know what to expect because I’ve been a little sick the past two weeks and that took a toll on my runs. It caused me to run slower than normal and even skip a couple runs all together. But you know how it goes on racing day, the adrenaline can get cha!
I also don’t know what to expect from the course. It goes through a nature preserve mainly, so it could be quite scenic. But from what I gather on the course map, there are quite a few switchbacks. I hope they aren’t too bad. I also hope the weather is good. Anyone who lives in North Texas can tell you that it’s been windier around here than in a 1939 Kansas farmer girl’s dream/nightmare. It’d be nice to have a run where I’m not facing 20-30 mph steady gusts. And I hear the temps are supposed to be around 60 degrees American – which would be surprising and awesoming! N.TX don’t usually see those temps in mid May, I’ll take it.
I’ll do my best to try and place in my age group, but you knever know about that. I’ll fill y’all in on how the race went on Monday. So stay tuned!
Either way, after the race on Saturday we’re shooting a new David Chicken music video. If you (or your little ones) want to be in it. Holla at me!
