I am really thinking about signing up for a 5k in May. I even discussed it with my husband and he thinks it would be great for me.
I have never done a race and while I would love to do the half marathon I know I am just not ready for that at this point.
I would kind of be going into it blind as I have never done, been to or seen a race of any sort. So I need advice, help, tips, ideas etc.
None of my friends would be going so I wonder if I will find anyone there to talk with or will I just be the odd man out. I am not good with being in solitude for very long. With the distance from home to the race I would need to stay in a nearby hotel and I am not sure how crazy things get the night before the race. What about foods to eat before the race? What if I have to pee in the middle of it? What do I wear so I don't have a wedgie the whole time and chaffed thighs? What if, What if, What if? I just realized that I am intimidated by the pictures of all the racers.
I know its only 3.1 miles but still, all of these things are possible and totally my luck.
Anyways, if you could spare some advice or words of wisdom I would totally appreciate it.
On another note, I got a super fancy new scale for Valentine's Day and I love it! However, this one is not the same # as my current scale. :(
