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.
