I haven’t had a race since April. I was starting to go through race withdrawals. I started searching for a local race that interested me this next week and I found the San Jose Sharks Fitness Showdown. They have a 5k, 10k, 20 mile bike, and 50 mile bike. I signed up for the 5k because I haven’t ran just a 5k in ages and would love to PR. Plus we need to hop in the car and head to Tahoe the same day so I need a quick race. Today it is unfortunately 104 degrees here and tomorrow it is suppose to be the same way. I’m just praying it will be under 80 degrees at the 8:00am start, but unlikely. That might play a big part in whether I PR or not. Fingers crossed!
Later on this week I will be running a half marathon for the Swagtastic Virtual Half Marathon that benefits Medals4Mettle. You can read my post about that race here. If it continues to be this hot I may end up running at 3am!
Anyone else have a fun race they are doing this week?
