For those of you that have been following me for a while know that I love running. I ran my very first Half Marathon in December for St. Jude. Afterwards though I had a lot of pain in my knee. I went to the doctor and was put in a brace with no physical activity for 8 weeks. Then very limited activity. I blogged about it here.
Well I have been just walking lately. I walk about 3 miles each time. On July 3rd there is the Firecracker 5K. I am really wanting to participate so I think I am going to sign up. I doubt I will be able to run the whole time so I am planning on doing a walk-run! But at least it will get me back into racing. I am so excited!
The race is at night so that it will not be so hot! The heat index in Memphis today is between 105 and 110.
Has anyone ran that race before? Or know anyone who has?
