My first July race (corporate approved)

A corporate 5K - what's not to love?

Today's run (street): 2.5 miles

Today was one of those automatic pilot runs where I got up, got changed and headed outside without thinking about the effort ahead. Unlike yesterday, I let my natural rhythm determine my pace and I paid the price with a run that took over a minute longer than Tuesday's (along the same route). I gave myself a break after yesterday's hard run and was glad at the end.

It's all well and good to run easy, but suddenly I have a new race on the calendar and I have to train for speed. My parent company is holding a 5K in the city on July 25th and I've signed up. This would be my first ever July race. Most importantly, it's an opportunity to run with my colleagues. Many of my work friends have signed up to do it and I'm looking forward to the event. It's has an evening start time (6:00 PM) and I'm a morning runner, but I'm hoping to make the best of it.
