Those who have read my blog on my New Year’s resolutions will be familiar with this one already. One of my New Year’s resolutions for 2013 was to run my first timed 5k event. I’ve done the Warrior Dash and Turkey Trot in the past, and we are doing the Glow Run 5K this Saturday, but those were for fun and now I’m keeping time. So with that in mind the only question I have is which one do I choose. While talking to the wife, who is a running junkie, she immediately provided me a list of potential races. I’m happy to say that I’ve officially registered for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Mini Marathon. Being the inaugural year we figured it was fitting that this be my first run as she’ll be doing the half Marathon that same day. I do have to say I’m excited and nervous all at the same time. Excited because it’s yet another resolution on my 2013 list that I will have knocked off the list. Nervous because I’m afraid, afraid of failing and not meeting the hour time limit I have to complete the 5k. As I sat here and typed this blog post apparently my wife in the background was registering me. This way she knew this would be my first. Be on the lookout for my blog post on the actual 5k and my first timed run experience.
