am I ready for my first race . . .

I really hadn’t thought of it as a race so much as a “fun run” or an alternative training day.  On Thursday of this week I will be running the in JPMC Corporate Challenge with my office.  The course is 3.5 miles and technically it is a race.

I am kinda excited and I’m looking forward to spending time with my coworkers doing something that I’m really beginning to enjoy.  I’ll let the people who want to race race; I’ll focus on finishing, having fun and not getting hurt.

  1. You are totally ready! And that is the right mindset (fun run) for the Corporate Challenge. It’s super crowded and it can be a bit frustrating (in that you can’t always run consistently because there are so many people doing different paces all over). Just so ya know, it’s a 3.5 miler! :) Can’t wait to hear about it!!!

    1. I don’t know why I thought it was a 5k…in either case it is still a distance that I have run (mostly) before.
      It feels good to KNOW I have done this distance on multiple occasions. :) and there most certainly will be an update post!

    2. OH MY GOSH it was so crowded! So so crowded. Between the walkers and the super aggressive runners it was a bit of a mess; but fun. I’m happy that I did it and thankful to now have experience with: corrals, water stations, large crowds (runners) and seeing a finish line.
