Tomorrow will be my first time running this 5k. I have been more geared toward endurance running, so this will be interesting. I haven’t competed in a 5k in over a year, so I am just going to do the best I can. I am racing as part of Team RunRaleigh Racing, and I am lucky enough to be racing tomorrow with my 17 year old son Dylan. I am sure he will step out in front of me at the line, and I will be chasing him down the whole race. Actually, I am just hoping that I can keep him in my sights, as he will be my inspiration to move my feet faster. As Tropical Storm Andrea approaches from the south, this may be the first race I may have to run in the rain. I have been lucky so far. I have been getting a lot of great advice, as I have been a bit concerned about my speed. My goal for tomorrow? Enjoy another race with my son, and be inspired by all the women and men wearing pink in support of breast cancer awareness. Hopefully I will inspire, as well.
Do you run to inspire? Do you run to be inspired?
