Brrrrracing for a Race

Even though it's crazy, I successfully convinced John to run a 2 Mile race this weekend. Yes, it's still February in Ohio and the high for that day is only in the 20's. No, we don't ever run in cold weather. Yes, we have only run inside since our lovely Thanksgiving trip to Austin. But, it's only 2 miles. That's nothing! We'll be running for 20 minutes (less for John) and then we can go inside to a health fair where I'm expecting to pick up as much free stuff as possible. And it's a for a good cause....heart health! We like healthy hearts so why not support it?

This kicks off my goal of running 5 races in 2010. Last year on the 4th of July we ran our first and only race and had a lot of fun. So, I want to do more this year. Even though it's not a 5K, I'm still counting it. I've never run a 2 mile competitive race so I'll chalk it up as a learning experience.

Can my pace give me a finishing time below 20:00? Is my foot pain going to hold off until I'm done? Will snot freeze to my face? (Sorry that was gross). Stay tuned!
