The Runner’s World Heartbreak Hill race weekend is quickly approaching! My plan for the Five and Dime race (5K followed immediately by a 10K) is basically the same plan I’ve had for every other race I’ve completed. I just want to run, have fun and really enjoy the race day experience. I’ve never been a particularly fast or talented runner and sometimes I think this alleviates some race day pressure since I don’t have a competitive bone in my body when it comes to running.
The thing that always keeps me coming back to running is the sense of accomplishment I feel after a good run. For some reason, no other workout can replicate the way I feel after a run (especially a long run during half marathon training) and I felt fantastic after today’s sandy beach run with Sadie.
