a base race

There is a 5K this weekend near my hometown and my parents' ministry is sponsoring it, meaning I'm obligated to run. Originally I had planned on running it with my mom at a nice, easy pace. Now I'm thinking of racing it. 

I use the term racing loosely because:
  1. I'm nowhere near race shape. 
  2. I have no intention of winning/placing in my age group/running a PR. 

My only achievement will likely be vomiting at the finish line for the first time after a race. 

This race will merely give me an idea of where I'm at fitness-wise and will provide a baseline for summer training paces.
Does anyone want to trek down with me? I need someone to hold back my hair at the finish line. Plus, it's for a good cause.
