Hoping for a PR tomorrow at the San Jose Sharks 5k

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?

    Good luck on your race. I don’t have any races coming up and am way behind on my goals. I better start lioking for them!
