It’s Race Week

It’s Race Week!!! This Saturday Morning is the Spring Sprint 5k and I am pretty darn excited. This is my FIRST 5k since Dec 2nd 2007 when I ran the Reindeer Run 5k.

My training will be a little altered for this week as I go into a mini-taper mode in preparations for race morning.

And this is a great lead in for a GUESS MY TIME contest! That’s right, you get to guess my finishing time for this coming up 5k race. The closest person WITHOUT going over will win something, I go through and see what kinda crap I got… or maybe I’ll get something from MyCokeRewards.com since I still have a couple thousand points and they haven’t restocked with the super nice stuff yet. Winners will have to submit their postal address to me, which I will use for purposes of shipping their prize and ruling the world.

Official Entry consists of leaving a comment to this entry. As long as comments are open and results have not been posted, you can submit your entry. Winners who guess my time exactly, will get something special… like maybe an 8×10 signed portrait… great for dart boards.

So here is some running history for you to help make your decision:
