So I signed up for another race. Suprising I know. The Tannenbaum 10k. I realize I seriously need goals and goals that all me don't quite cut it. I find that setting a goal of improving pace or speed don't work unless I have a way to test them. Sure I can get a new PB (or at least attempt to get a new one) on regular runs out after weeks of work. But a race is the real test for me. This race is also great because as part of your registration fee you're required to bring in a donation of a new unwrapped toy or non perishable food items.
Plus how fun and addictive is standing at that starting line and crossing the finish line?
