Every Tuesday night at my running club, our coach makes a few announcemnets before we start the workout-
He talks about any awesome race performances over the past weekend from members
He goes over the workouts for the 5k/10k people, half marathers and marathoners
He discusses upcoming volunteer opportunities at running club sponsered races
AND he talks about upcoming races
Tuesday night was no different, except that he mentioned a new race. A 15k race on September 5th.
My eyes went wide with excitement that I might actually be able to jam this race into my schedule, just 5 short days from my wedding. We ran a few warm up laps and I pondered the idea and wondered it I was even in shape to race a 15k.
I asked coach what he thought and of course he was on board with the idea since he is also running the race. So I took my old half marathon plan from spring and revamped the final four weeks for the 15k. Everything just came together so easily.
The 15k distance has to be one of my favorites and I am excited to get to race it again this year since I missed out on the Boilermaker. My coach said that this course is flat and fast so I am hoping to break my PR of 1:11 from last year's Boilermaker. Now I just need to talk my running buddy into running it with me!! Only 25 days to go...and 30 until the wedding!
