I decided to go to the Florida Track Club website and look at the last 6 in-town 5k results. Of those six, I can beat the last-place finisher's time in FOUR of them! That is making me feel better about my time. When you hear about people doing 5ks in a half-hour or less, it can really make you doubt yourself. Going into this thinking I have a 66% chance of not being last has given me a new wind and I know I'll be able to do this!I feel some trepidation about the upcoming 5k next weekend. I have a sad feeling in my heart that I will be dead last crossing that finish line, and I will probably get the pity claps and yells, but you know what? I will have done the most important thing - I will have CROSSED THE FINISH LINE OF MY VERY FIRST 5k. I will not quit, I will not give up, I will give it my all and I will cross that finish line, even if I am the very last person to do so. There is no pity to be had, for I will have finished, and right now, that is the greatest thing in the world to me.
And then I'll have cake.
