Going solo

17 May

Tomorrow morning at 6:00 AM I am running a 10K (6.2 miles) in the Colfax Marathon Relay. This will be my first race that I run alone, without Travis. I’ve only done 2 races–a 10-miler and the half marathon I just ran 3 weeks ago. But they were both with Travis. We trained together and we ran the race together (at my pace of course).

But Stacey is the one who asked me just this past Thursday if I wanted to run in the relay and they only needed one more person. So Travis is just going to cheer me on from the sidelines. I’m not too worried–6.2 miles isn’t that far compared to a half marathon. On Friday morning, I ran 3.7 miles no problem and I ran it in 37:08! I really want to try to push myself tomorrow to run at least sub-11s–none of this 11:30 crap. 🙂

As I was looking at the marathon website tonight though, trying to figure out parking and where the start line was (I’m running the first leg of the relay), I found out that each separate leg of the relay (there are 5 total) has a different color bib. The first leg’s bib is yellow. I was given a green bib. The green bib is for the last leg–the 12K. Oops. The woman coordinating our team picked up everyone’s packet for them so someone else on our team must have my bib. I’ve tried calling Stacey’s cell and home phone because it sounds like this is a non-negotiable thing from the website. I’m praying that the Lord will work everything out…

Or else we’re not running!!

    How did it go? I hope everything worked out… You’re definitely motivating me to get out and work out, especially with the nice weather we have here right now.
