My next race! The Women's Run 5 mile, 6 days to go!

By clicking  HERE  you will find the site for one of my favorite races. The race this year in on May 7th.  It is one of my favorites .for several reasons

1. Its a fast course, no hills only some slight elevation.
2. It's the first race I ever did.
3. It's one of the biggest, well probably is the biggest race I do. 
4. There isn't a lot of turns so you can really keep on eye on the people in front of you.

Last year I was 7th in my age group and  I think 16th overall.  My age group has some really fast runners! I am hoping it will be warm enough to wear my new running skirt (please please cooperate weather).  As of today it is forecasted to be 69 next Saturday, hopefully at 8 am it will be sunny and I will be happy with mid forties if it is sunny! However, it is calling for showers :(  My goal is to beat last years time of  36:01 by thirty seconds.  Not a real lofty goal I know, but I don't feel like I have done very much speedwork outside due to weather.

I haven't had a race since April 9th, so I am excited and raring to go.  May is full of races, so excited!
