Once I came back to reality, I reminded myself that I am currently doing the C25K program and have a hard time running for 5 minutes let alone 5 hours. I remembered my one and only goal for this year is to become a runner again not to just do a race only to become injured again. I am going to train with Sarge and be her "coach" and enjoy the race weekend. I may do the 5K that is offered and I will bring the kidlets up to do the Whipper Snapper Race.
My Plan B race is to run the Urban Wildlands Half Marathon. It is not as big of a race as the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon but it has grown leaps and bounds over the last 6 years. I ran the inaugural race and it was a disaster (that is for another post). So I want to redeem my self and complete this race in more respectable manner. It is August 1st so it is only 5 weeks after the Garry Bjorklund race.
- It is cheaper only $38 as opposed to $75
- The course runs right past my house so a post party is mandatory
- It benefits a Woodlake Nature Center and it is a green race
- The race was designed to fit in with training for the Twin Cities Marathon in October
