I haven't really made a big deal about it because as you all know, I'm not really a fan of 5Ks. However, I figure it's good to do one on occasion, and they take the place of a week's speed workout quite nicely.
I ran this one last year, too, and won my age group... so I feel like I kind of have to go run it again and see what happens. I never even place in my age group and it was a total shock to win last year so I'm not letting myself expect that I'll win again... but I'm still going to try and place. :)
I just created what I think will be the perfect playlist for the race:
You Give Love a Bad Name - Bon Jovi
Ramalama (Bang Bang) - Roisin Murphy
Extreme Ways - Moby (this is the theme song for the Bourne movies)
Shake Me Like a Monkey - Dave Matthews Band
Paint It, Black - The Rolling Stones
In the End - Linkin Park
Let It Rock - Kevin Rudolph and Lil Wayne
This SHOULD be enough to keep me entertained for about a minute longer than I anticipate running the race in... it better be anyways!
I'll be back soon to let you know how it goes.
