Here we go!
In a moment of "oh yeah, I can totally do that" I signed up for a race. That's right. A race! In two weeks!! Oh boy. Apparently now that I am moving better, my love of all things race kicked in (race t-shirts, medals, start lines, finish lines, expos, and goody bags). This race has an option for a 5K Run or a 5K Walk. And you have to register for one or the other. Now here is the dilemma - obviously I will be walking way more than I will be running this 5K. But I will be attempting to run at least part of it. Does that make me part of the Run or the Walk? What to choose? I tell you I was very torn over this issue. I wavered back and forth and forth and back. In the end I signed up for the run (after realizing both the run and walk started at the same time) because I always think back to my first half marathon (many, many years ago and I walked the entire thing) and the race official was telling us if you are a walker, you should be walking, not running. Since I am pretty sure I will be able to run a little bit, that's what I signed up to do. Wow, this will be my first race in about 5 months! Now, what to wear? And what playlist? All these exciting decisions to make!
