Fitness Friday: I'm Racing, Are You?

This Sunday I'm running my first official race since the Soldier Field 10 back in May, the 10 mile Grand Rapids Bridge Run.  I'm surprisingly calm and relaxed about it.  I know a ton of people also running either the 5k or the 10 miler and my plan is to just go out and have fun.  My last two 5 mile tempo runs have been phenomenal but I'm trying not to get over confident. If I can maintain the pace I've been running for 10 miles, I could be looking at a huge PR.  But, if that doesn't happen, I'm totally fine with it.  I ran a great race in Chicago last May (since I was so motivated to beat my husband - which I did!), so beating that time is going to be tough.

I know a lot of other friends have races this weekend, too.  I need to give a special shout-out to my girl, Kirsten, who is running the Tough Mudder NorCal on Saturday.  She'll be running 10 or 11 miles, but running through a crap-load of freaky hard obstacles in the process.  I am so proud of how hard she has been training for this and I cannot wait to read her race report.

Are you racing this weekend?
