It's official, I finally registered for my very first road race! It's the Kaiser Permanente San Francisco 5k. It's on February 5th (about a month away) and runs through Golden Gate Park. There's a half marathon on the same day that starts and ends at the same place in the park, but it also goes down the Great Highway (one of my favoritist roads) by the ocean, but I am so not there yet!.
I am really excited, but also very nervous. I've been really busy this past week, so I haven't gotten a chance to hit the gym, but I am going to go tonight! So far I've just been working on trying to run a 5k straight through on the treadmill, but I am going to start working on running at an incline, as well as running outside.
My goals for this race:
1. Finish (seems simple enough, but no guarantees)
2. Run the whole thing (again, no guarantees)
3. Try to finish in 36 minutes
Also, for those of you unfamiliar with Golden Gate Park, there is a bison in there, maybe 2. This has been confirmed because one day I went looking for it.
