More Than I can Chew

Saturday I will be running in a marathon relay in my hometown. I think I may have bitten off more than I can chew here. I have yet to break five miles. I have come close 4.7 and today I did 4.5 hoping it was closer to 5 than it was. My problem here people is the sun. The brutal, harsh, hot, bright sun, it saps all of my energy as soon as I get started. I also took the leg of the relay that has horrible hills that I didn't think about when choosing the leg, I just thought about the pretty lake I'd be running through. My only ray of hope is it is supposed to be a high of 70 on Saturday. I'm hoping that is cool enough for my run forever feeling to kick in. There is a chance of rain too, since every race I've been in it has rained, I'm thinking it will probably rain too.  I'm looking forward to seeing some of my friends and hanging out at the party after, so I will run that 5 miles if it kills me. 

So my goals for this week are:  get a shift of overtime in, try and get a 5 miler in on Tuesday, make invites for Peanut Butter's birthday party, finish my 5 miles of the relay, and have a blast. Peanut Butter is going to hang out with Nana for the weekend and is super excited about that.
