a goal for tomorrow's race

I said I'd at least try to write a "goals" post about tomorrow's 5k, so here it is, short and sweet. 

The first timed 5k I ever ran, at the beginning of my running life back in 2008, was 23:57, which has happily  been the slowest 5k I've ever run. My 5k PR is 20:25. 

My goal: Run somewhere in between those two times. 

Secondary goal: Don't have the first mile be my fastest.

I've decided to wear my Garmin, but I am going to do my darnedest to not look at it. With the way we're running around Harriet, I think there are some tiny rollers in the first mile, and a more significant climb in the second. So my overall race plan goes something like this: ease into the first two, hammer the last. Also: Don't be a baby.

Just for the record, I hate 5ks.
