Tomorrow morning, I'll running my first race of the calendar year: the St Patrick's Day road race. This isn't a race I've been specifically training towards. It's one that I signed up for fun and to give me my race rush.
I'm not sure what I'll be wearing. Looks like it is likely to be just below freezing. Depending on the wind, that could mean jacket, or not. Could mean toque or cap. Gloves? Don't know yet.
I do know what number I'll be sporting. Number 300, a nice even number.
Goals for this race? Man, I'm wishy washy, but that depends too.
Up until yesterday, I was planning on running to the best of my ability and pushing myself.
Now, the weather forecast is calling for a chance of rain or wet snow this evening. With likely freezing temperatures at race time, that might mean a skating rink. Or, it might be totally clear pathways.
Right now, my main goal will be one that I've used before: roll with the punches. Don't let things that are out of my control stress me out.
And have fun!
