Today I registered last minute for the Main Line 5K tomorrow morning. I was stalking Running in the USA.com and Runners World.com for races in the area and there are SO MANY fabulous races coming up, right in my backyard! I totally need to take advantage of them. I pretty much run alone everyday, so it’s nice to be around other runners sometimes. And obviously the more I run at ‘race pace,’ the better! I also have a soft spot in my heart for race bibs and race shirts!
I am excited! I went today and registered in person, picked up my shirt and checked out where I am supposed to be tomorrow. I know the weekends are usually my sleep in days, but I am looking forward to getting up bright and early tomorrow for the race!
Below is the course. I am happy when courses go in loops. I HATE when courses go out to a certain point and then you have to double back the same way you came, like I had to do in the Zooma Half. I seriously hate it.
After I registered for the race tomorrow, traffic took me by my old stomping ground: Villanova University. It’s parents weekend there this weekend and the place was packed, but just as beautiful as ever. I snapped some pictures of the church while sitting in traffic.
Oh to be back in college again…
I had a healthy little meal which was full of vegetables and some pasta for energy tomorrow morning along with some water. I have been hydrating like a crazy person all day!
