Last night I went to register for the 5k I planned to run on 5/7 and discovered that it's been postponed until next year. Ugh- I was looking forward to that race. I looked at the list of races for 5/7 and a week earlier on 4/30 and nothing totally interests me. They all appear to be bigger than I want, but there are some cheap ones so they may win out. Or maybe I shouldn't race until 5/14 so I can keep focusing on speed and hopefully beat my last PR by a bigger margin. Or I thought about finding a race on one of those days that offers a 1k for the kids. Peanut has been begging to race again. But I didn't see many 1k options and I don't want to pay $25 x 2 for my 2 and 4 year old kids to run. I don't think Peanut could do a 5k yet (even walking she would be too tired) and I had to encourage Shankopotamus to keep going at that 1k (or less) that they did several weeks ago. Hmmm... to race or not to race?
Update- I'm still looking for a race and I just found this one on Active.com! I couldn't make this up. But I will NOT be entering.
