Coach would be so proud

Tomorrow I am racing a 5k. And I emphasize racing. Because this is a super small race Dave and I drove the course so I knew what I would be doing. I have never, EVER seen a course before I raced it.

This one starts out super flat for about a mile and a half. Then it turns left and goes up a flight of stairs. You turn left again and run on top of the flood wall, in the grass, for about half mile, maybe. This is where we couldn't figure it out and the people that worked at registration didn't know a whole lot more than us. It seems you go back down the stairs on the other side of the wall and run a dirt trail until it connects with a paved trail. The final part is rolling along the river and finished under a giagantic bridge. A freakin' bridge!!!

The best part, the race shirt is pink, all of them. That means Dave's race shirt is pink. He he he!

Race report tomorrow.

awesome course! I am always talking the crew I run with into doing stairs in the middle of a run! YAY for pink racing shirts--the last time I was in the gym (and paying attention) I counted 5 out of the 7 girls there had pink shirts on :)

It's so smart to go over the course before you Race it - definitely would've made a BIG difference in some of my races, knowing whats comin' up! :) Good luck!!
