Race Season is upon me! For those who don't know, "Race Season" is when runners (like myself) go through several races at a time. The upcoming races is what I train for, the moments I have been waiting for. Which makes me nervous, yet super excited. And with all this anticipation I'm just afraid I won't live up to the hype.
My first race of the year was the UNITE 5K Run Against Drugs in London, Ky. I PR'd (personal record) at a time of 19:13. This time is great, especially when you see the course. two huge hills. But at the same time I was very disappointed. I was shooting for 18:24. But considering how much of an improvement this time is compared to my last four 5K races, I'm very encouraged.
My first four 5K races i finished with times of: 20:08, 21:40, 20:36, and 20:27. So a 1:14 improvement from my last race. But as I near upcoming races, I always think that this could only change my future...right?!?!? But I know that whatever happens God will use it to make it good. Bible verse of the day! Comes from Romans 8:28, which says "And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who Love God and are called according to His purpose for them." NLT.
So to recap: I'm nervous about upcoming races, and I pray that whatever happens God can use them for good. Any Q's?
