Road race.

It's been so long since I've done a road race.  In fact, I can't remember the last one.  It must be the mid sun race I did several years ago.  So, this weekend I'm going to do a 10km road race in Raymond.

My goal is to finish in sub 45 min.

Not sure if I can do it but I love to set hard goals.

It's going to be strange to start a race in my runners and to not be getting wet first.  I've gotten so used to triathlons lately.  Adam wanted to finish in sub 40 min and win the thing but now he has a glute injury, so we're not sure if he'll be able to go hard.  We're hopeful though.  He's had a few injuries the past year, so he's learned how to quickly repair it through acupuncture, physio, icing and stretching.

Either way, we're both looking forward to this road race.  Small town races are so good for the ego because it's possible to place well.  We'll see what these legs can do....


  1. Good luck! I look forward to hearing about it.

  2. Yay!! I love the Raymond Road Race. You'll definitely be looking at winning it for the women if you can do it in sub 45. Here's my race hint: When you get to the yellow sign, you'll know you're at the top of Temple Hill, so then you can start lengthening your stride for the descent. Have fun!!
