5k number 2!

On Saturday Melissa and I will be running our 2nd 5k since we started the comp! I've been running 4-5 times a week in my very hilly neighborhood to train for it! I got on www.mapitnow.com and actually mapped out what I am running to calculate the distance and so... I now have my very own 5k that I run frequently! I really enjoy the run and I time myself when I run it with my fancy new (generic) mp3 player that has a stopwatch on it. I usually try not to eat much before I run because I don't want to burp up yucky stuff but tonight my run got pushed back a couple hours and so I HAD to eat. I cannot believe what a difference eating a whole meal before I ran made. I cut 3 minutes off my time! HOLY GEEZE!! So I suppose that there really is something to that "carb load the night before a big run" theory. Hmm.. maybe tomorrow night I will have some lasagna! YUMM!!! With french bread! ;o)

Wow, good for you for becoming such a runner. Running distance is hard for me. So I'm impressed by people like you who can do it & enjoy running like that. Good luck in the 5k tomorrow (although it doesn't sound like you need luck...unless you eat a big meal prior!)
