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:
- I'm nowhere near race shape.
- 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.
