Its Race Weekend!!!!

 My Run Gear, tank top, shorts (jiggly thighs oh my!), running shoes, run belt with pouch and water bottles

Back in the fall I registered for the 10K event for Ottawa Race Weekend.  I had all the best intentions for this year's race, to beat my time of last year (71 min 11 seconds).  Like they say for best intentions.... hmmm yeah.  I haven't trained properly for it this year, I the longest run I've done to date is 8K and in the last few weeks I've been doing about 3K per run.  So I've not been looking forward to the day because I know I'm not properly trained, also last week the forecast was upwards to 30c with high humidity maybe rain.  The last time I did a run in high heat (Perth Kilt Run 2011) I almost died and had the worst run EVER.

Well the weather gods have smiled on us today!!!  Its clear, sunny, and the warmest its going to get is 24c!  Wooo Hoo!  Gun time isn't until 6:30, so by then temps should be dropping to about 22... sweet!

So I've been dreading this day for weeks, but now I'm REALLY looking forward to it!  I'm going to try my best to run the whole distance ... as I said I've not run far enough but my adrenaline might carry me through.

Wish me luck... shout out if you see me!!!!
