This weekend I am running the HCA VA 8k in Richmond. This is my first 8k, and I must admit that the lower mileage has made me a biiiiiiiit lazy in my training. I don't think it helps that I have been training sans-sister, since she is doing the half marathon, like a Kenyan.
Besides the obvious reasons for my laziness (4.97 miles vs. 13.1), some not so obvious reason for my distraction (a nicer term for laziness), was my 2 weeks notice and subsequent week off from a job. Oh and a new nephew. :) More on all of those items later.
My master plan for the 8k:
-Have 2-3 stomach episodes
-Gain some amazing insight on humanity
-Quickly lose aforementioned insight after crossing the finish line
-Be sore the next day
Just like any other race, right? Can't wait.
