I've worked my way up to running 3 miles ... now I just need to add an extra mile for my race next month. I don't expect to win by any means, but I do have a goal in my head that I want to reach. I'm pretty sad that I'll have to run alone. When I found out about the race my best friend agreed to run with me, but 2 weeks ago she moved to Florida so now I'm on my own. My first race ... I'm kind of nervous. I know everything will be fine, but I've never really entered any sort of competition so I don't know what to expect. At least it is a 4 mile run/walk so I know I won't come in dead last since the walkers should be behind me. I'm trying to fit in more training time, but sometimes sitting on the floor with my kids is way more appealing than running. I'll be attempting to go 3.5 miles this weekend, let's hope I make it!
