So a few weeks ago I did a post about my last race and of course it was not my last race, just my last race in my 30’s. Well I had to do a post on my first race of my 40’s of course. Tonight I will be running my first race as a 40-year-old. The 9th Annual Dale Sanders Apalachee Wildcat 5k. It is another evening race but this one is not in the dark.
My goal is simple, PR. I hope to make my first race in my 40’s faster than any race I ran in my 30’s. We will just see. I know nothing about this race at all. My practicing patience last time did not work out so well for me but I hope to give it another try tonight.
I have not exactly tapered for this race but I am just treating it like my speed-work for the week. As I went out yesterday morning I thought to myself that I hope I have fresher legs for the race tomorrow night.
For my last race I think I was doing a good bit of reflecting over the past 10 years. For this race there has been none of that! I just wanna run! Will let you know how it goes.
