Yup, you read that right. After not running Nashville and Chicago due to injury and lack of preparedness, respectively, I finally wised up and decided to change my race in St Louis to the 5K. This is beneficial in several ways. One, I’ll probably be ready for a 5K in October, but unlikely to be ready for a half-mart, so there’s that. Running a 5K might actually be fun, whereas the half-marathon would probably be a grind. It’s supposed to be fun, right? The last thing is that the 5K, which is on the Saturday of race weekend, works better for me than the half-marathon, which is Sunday. I’m just hoping that this change doesn’t mean I won’t get to meet up with Kate and Mike, especially since Mike was going to grill up some onion and bacon wrapped meat balls. That would be tough to miss.
Tell me those don’t look amazing –
follow Mike on Instagram for more deliciousness.
