...until I saw a post in one of my Facebook running groups. There was a 10k race on Saturday , May 30th! Talk about getting one in just in the nick of time! I immediately signed up, hoping for the best for the race.
Race day came, and I woke up with a very unhappy stomach. I was not feeling very confident about the race, but I knew it was my last chance, and even if I shaved off a couple of minutes from my proof of time, it would be better than what I already have, right?
The race was in Roswell, GA and started and ended at a Catholic church. The race benefits the work of the Ghana Friendship Project's work. It helps to supply medical and health care supplies, educational material and clothing to the people of Ghana.
Getting to the race was super easy. I arrived at around 6:30 and had plenty of time to grab my bib and shirt, walk back to my car to get ready, and get to the finish line. I kind of liked that I didn't have a lot of time to stand around. I went to the race solo so I took some time to give myself a little pep talk (and a couple of pictures)
