A blogging friend is going to be doing a 5K this weekend, though he is not excited about it. He is concerned about finishing slower than previous races, finishing at the end of the pack, etc. I understand completely.
It has been months and months since I last ran 3.1 miles. I am out a few nights a week now, but doing shorter distances and only running half the time. Lame.
But I received an e-mail from a local running store that is having a "Run for Beer" event this Friday. You show up at 6pm, run their 5K route and get a ticket for a nearby microbrewery.
Since I haven't had a beer or a 3-mile run in quite awhile, and my friend is going to be slugging it out in his race across the country, I figured I should join in!
I may not post my time, but this clydesdale will be trotting his way to a frosty beverage this Friday. Even if I finish in last place.
