I’ve always enjoyed running in races. I remember when the race bug bit me, I was a freshman. I ran in the Macy*s 10k and was hooked! I continued search for races that I could run in when I wasn’t training for track (that left fall/winter and summer). I found a race in Yuma, AZ that took place over winter break when I was visiting my grandparents and I ran in a 4th of July Freedom 5k in the summer.
Racing always helped me keep my training and running on track. Having a goal, like finishing a race or trying for a PR, has always helped me to keep on top of my running and training. With that in mind, I decided to sign up for a 5k! This one is located close to home and should be fun!
