Tomorrow is the Grande Prairie Herald Tribune Press Run. !!!!
I am super excited for this race. 1) because I am racing and that is exciting and 2) because a have a group of my Women of Strength girls running their first races!!
I am so pumped for these ladies to have their first race experience. They are nervous, excited and somewhat ignorant as to what they are in for. All the emotions that you only have before you do something for the first time! I am proud of their courage and honored that they trust me enough to sign up because I told them too!! LOL There are almost 370 people registered for the 10km run/walk and the 21km run/ walk. That is impressive in a center this size!! Kudos to Sonja and Lori who are the race directors and who have really built this race into a big community event!
As for me, I am stoked to race. My week has been pretty low key as I've been fighting the sickies. Sore throat/ swollen glands have scared me enough to keep the workouts light and easy. I also have a sore leg as a result of H-dog yanking me off balance to chase after something.
Before a race I am never sure if these little aches and pains are real or just psyschosomatic. Sometimes they magically disappear after the race. Anyone else experience this??
