Tomorrow I'll be running my 7th 10K. (Side note: Wow, I just realized I've run twice as many half marathons as 10Ks.) This will be my 3rd time running this particular 10K race, and I always enjoy it. This year is extra special because the race is celebrating it's 35th Anniversary and we get extra swag:
- Custom medal with spinning peacock.
- Commemorative Tech Tee
- Collectible, Souvenir Glass (I'm most excited about this!)
- $5 Track Shack Cash
As usual, we'll bike there which serves as a nice warm up, but I hope to have time to also run a warm up mile. My goal for this race is aggressive, although within what my Magic Mile predicts: I'd love to break 1 hour or at least a 10 min/mile avg pace (1:02), but ultimately I just want to PR (<1:06). I am not printing a pace chart, but I'll run with my Garmin (Jason fixed it!) and just keep an eye on my average pace. As long as it's under 10:40 I'll PR, which shouldn't be hard since my half PR is 10:32. I'll be pushing to get it under or as close 10 as I can :)
Many from my running group and other running friends will also be there, which always makes racing a lot more fun. Jason will also be out there taking photos, so shout his name and smile if you spot him! However, what I'm most excited about is that I remembered that La Empanada Food Truck is at the Winter Park Farmer's Market on Saturdays! Maybe it will make me run faster now that a post-race empanada is in my future :)
