Ambitious

I knew this was the perfect shirt as soon as I saw it! 
According to my google search-
 
AmbitiousAdjective 
1.  Having or showing a strong desire and determination to succeed
2.  (of a plan or piece of work) Intended to satisfy high aspirations and therefore difficult to achieve

Well, aside from my easy run tomorrow I have completed my 12 week RLRF training plan for a faster 5K. I'm not gonna lie- I am super duper glad it is over! I have really enjoyed the break from my long runs, and I think this training has been beneficial to me as a runner but I am done with speed work for a little while. Well, I guess I do have ONE more little run to do on Saturday at my BIG RACE! I sure hope I can manage a PR, after all the hard work I have put in. I need to hold a pace faster than 8:05 over the course of 3.1 miles.  My goal is ambitious, but I have faith in my training.  I can do this.

The race begins at 9am on March 17th.  I am planning to head down to the start area early to meet up with some friends as well as a group of bloggers that will also be running.  I love fun races with lots of familiar faces!  I have my outfit pretty much together- the weather will determine the extra layers I need.  And we have definitely had some wacky weather around here lately including snow, hail, high winds, sun, pouring rain, sleet.  Did I miss anything?  And I am talking about all in one day!  So hopefully we will get something on the mellow side, my fingers are crossed for mid forties and no wind or rain.  What, a runner girl can dream right?

Anyone else doing a fun St Paddy Day race this weekend?  Any fun outfits???
