Searching.

I've been searching for a new race to add to my schedule, since I have nothing on it between now and the Race for the Cure in October. As I started to look around, I decided I'd really like to find a race that I've never run before. I think I found just that in the Run for the Roses 5K.

So, it's on the schedule: August 10th. My goal will be to break 24 minutes (which, if you'll remember, was my goal for my last race). There are a few things that I need to do to make that happen, the most important of which is to add some speed workouts to my regular routine. Pretty obvious, right? I know. It's just that I like my runs as they are and I don't usually think of them as workouts. But, I also really want to finish a 5K in under 24 minutes. Conflicts, conflicts . . .

I'll add in some speed. It won't kill me. In fact, it will make me better, I'm sure.

Let's hope so! I feel like I'm pretty close so a little hard work should get me there. I just have to make sure to motivate myself to do the work!
