I was working on hitting a 8:00 pace on all of my runs. I felt pretty good, but I was a little fast on the first two 400's. I finally found my pace and ran pretty close on the 800's and the 1200.
I was watching the weather today before I went to pick up my race packet. Everyone was talking about how cold and rainy its going to be. I had not registered for the race, so if I decided not to do it I was not going to be out any money. Then it hit me, how often do I get to run a race two miles from my house and freeze my ass off? How many times will I get a chance to run on the island with a bunch of people fighting crazy wind and pouring rain? How sick is that? I love it!
I really do hate running in the cold, but I love running in the rain. Who knows, this could be my best run ever. I am certain I will set a new Personal Best, well it's my first 15K so I have to set a PB :)
I headed to the packet pickup and got my awesome shirt and race number (not much else). I did notice that the race is sponsored by Starbucks so there's hope that they will have coffee on hand!
