Your First Road Race
Signing up for your first race can be exciting or intimidating. Road racing should be just as much fun as your daily runs. Here's how to shake the (should I sign up jitters). First of all, remember that you are a runner now.That's half the battle. Next, choose a race in your area. Do you want to run fast or easy pace it? The short runs (5k) are the fastest. The (10k and above) allow for easy pacing. Decide which one is for you, sign up and go get your packet. Once you are there, I assure you that the jitters will pass. Go have fun . Enjoy the crowd. Enjoy the activities. Set a goal for yourself to complete the race. See you there!
