5 Goals for Southern Star Brewing Co. 5k

tumblr_n2ea8rC3z71qdxa23o1_1280Happy Friday!!! Today I’m linking up with Courtney from Eat Pray Run DC, Mar from Mar on the Run and Cynthia from You Signed Up For What for the Friday Five link up.

On Saturday I will be running in the Southern Star Brewing Company 5k.  I ran this race last year and had a great time.  It was my first race since I had been back to the running scene.  This year it will be a bit different… it is at a new location, so the course will be different.  Also, it doesn’t look like we will be blessed with a cool front… so, it will be quite hot at the 8am start.  sstar

I  have a few goals in mind for this race:

  1. Time Goal – beat my time from last year – 28:23.9
  2. Run reverse splits
  3. Stay hydrated
  4. Be comfortable being a little uncomfortable
  5. Have fun … enjoy the race and the after party

    I hope the race went well! #5 is definitely the most important, although #4 is a good one too with the heat 😉
