Just Have Fun

My first 5K race is coming up in two days. I am very excited about it with the exception of one thing. We have seen high winds daily here. It’s nice because it’s airing out my house with cool to warm weather, however I know what I feel like jogging against wind – and it’s not fast. πŸ™‚

So, all week I’ve been a little nervous about how I’ll do jogging in that wind. I’m most nervous when I’m driving and catch a glimpse of huge US flags that are blowing perfectly horizontal in the wind.
Last night I verbalized this nervousness to my husband and his reply was this:
“Just have fun, Leah. When you go to the gym and run and when you run on Saturday, just have fun.”
So, like The Little Engine That Could I will keep repeating to myself “Just have fun. Just have fun.” And I will! πŸ™‚
P.S. It was supposed to rain, but it looks like this lovely wind has blown it over and all inclement weather should be over by Saturday morning. I’m grateful for that!

    Wow, good luck with the run. I didn't know you were doing this. That is great and I agree with your husband!

    Is it about the speed or the experience? I think it is terrific you are getting out there and doing a 5K – that is fantastic. Sucks about the wind, but you will have fun anyway. I bet you won't even notice it through all the excitement of just being there…..

    Sandra – Good point. This race, for me, is solely about the experience and just finishing it without walking. That was my goal. I wanted to be able to jog an entire 5K without walking no matter how long it took me.

    Another reason to just have fun. Thanks for the reminder. πŸ™‚


  4. You are going to do great – wind or no wind. You are prepared and it's not about the speed but finishing it. What a sense of accomplishment you will feel when you cross that finish line – and how proud your family will be!


  5. Tonight, I had dinner with a cousin who recently completed her first 5k and she loved it! You are going to have those feelings soon! Don't worry about a little wind. You will finish and it will be fun. I just know it.
