Time's come to run a race. Waylaid by rain last week, a new race has presented itself -- this time, a four miler.
My goal last week was a 7:49/7:50 pace, to run 24:15 for 5K. Hoping that I have continued to improve, I am aiming for 31:00 (7:45). The race is said to be hilly, so I might not have what it takes; I've run very few hills.
Last year's times suggest I could get 169th place if I hit my time. That's 37th in my age group.
