This year I am looking to not only to improve my times on these courses by a good 2 to 4 minutes per race, I am looking to get a fair and square place, hopefully first place. I'm proud of my performance 3 years ago, but I am a much more experienced and fit runner than I was back then, so I am anxious and excited to see how I do.
Race #1 is a 5k at Bells Mill Park. Race #2 is a 6k up and down the hills of Mt. Trashmore (no that isn't a typo, it is landfill turned park). And race #3 is an 8k on the cross country course of VA Wesleyan College. I am looking forward to seeing how I have changed and improved in these past three years.
So much has changed in my life since then and I have so many races under my belt and miles on my legs. I do speed work and tempo runs now. My running wardrobe has for sure improved! I now own tech clothes. I think I wore wind pants, a long sleeve cotton t-shirt with a cotton t-shirt over that last time, maybe a hoodie? I didn't own a sweaty band or a Garmin and Lululemon might not have existed? At least not to me! It's funny how things change. Well, please wish me luck!
Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we can not see. Hebrews 11:1
