Oh yeah, a 5k and ENERGYbits Giveaway Winner

Yesterday I wrote about how I wasn’t sure what I was training for–RnR Madrid 1/2 Marathon or Grand Canyon Rim 2 Rim 2 Rim. Well, I seemed to have forgotten that I’ve got a 5k on Saturday lol!

I have not done any speed work for quite some time now and am not sure I’m ready for a speedy 5k. They’re not particularly my favorite because I feel like it requires full on beast mode the entire way. I’m more of a leisurely long distance runner jaja! I’d love to finally get my sub 25:00 but I don’t foresee that happening with this race.

What I’m most excited about is that my brother and sister are running it too! My sister is a runner (she’s the one that got me hooked on this thing) but my brother is not. He’s 6’2, 280 and yeah. But what I love about him is that he’s always up for anything–even doing something way outside his comfort zone. And he’s also one of our biggest cheerleaders šŸ™‚

It’ll be our first race together and I’m just so stoked about it. Oh and random fact: My brother and I were born in the same year–he in January and me in December! (Clearly, I was an oops baby lol!)

  1. I hate 5ks! I’m pretty sure it’s my worst distance. With that being said, they’re a must and I still try and do one or two of them every year. Fortunately, the one I usually run isn’t until October šŸ™‚

  2. I have not been a 5k fan in the past, but I would really like to change that. I am so used to pacing for long distances, I kid of forgot how to go all out.

    Thanks again for the energy bits!

  3. Have fun at the 5k with your family this weekend! I wish my brother liked running more, but I guess I can’t complain since he did a 10 mile Tough Mudder with me šŸ™‚
    I may be the only person that likes 5ks and doesn’t prefer marathons…but I’m ok with that lol

  4. That’s so awesome your siblings run too! No one in my family runs actually, but I’m trying to get my mom to run a 5K with me. I promised her it would be tons of fun! I’ve never run a 5K race but I want to do at least one this year. Good luck on Saturday!

  5. I used to love 5ks but now I’m not sure…I hate running fast so I like longer races where I can take it slow! That being said, I haven’t run a 5k since I started training for my first half so I’m wondering if I’ll be much faster now? I have one in 2 weeks (I won a free entry, otherwise I wouldn’t be doing one the weekend after my second half!) so I’ll have to see how I do! The good news is that you don’t even need to train for a 5k! Good luck this weekend!

  6. I haven’t done a 5k in ages (except one in December when I paced a friend). It’s not my favorite distance. But I have a 5k coming up in a few weeks. I can’t decide if I want to go for a PR or just chill since I have a half marathon and a full just two and three weeks later.

    No running siblings, but my dad used to be a runner.
