Last pre-shave training run

Yep, that was this morning: the last run before I attempt to Shave my 5K on Friday night. Easy half hour with 6 x 1 minute race pace intervals with 1 minute jogs at the end. That I can do:



Also got a race email last night with a course description. Sounds like it's going to be on some trails that I've been running lately, so I know right where they are. Unfortunately, it also sounds like it's gonna be twisty, hilly and dark, so I don't know about doing any shaving of time, but we'll see. Sounds like it'll start flat, then go uphill, then finish downhill. I think I'll just try to go as fast as possible on the uphill, then let gravity take me on the downhills.

In other news: I got my popener in the mail from Xenia! I haven't given it a test yet, that'll wait until Friday after the race, but I'll post a few pictures of it after that. I was absurdly excited to find a package from Rome in my mailbox yesterday...

Ha ha! I ran 5 miles this morning too, although almost a whole minute slower than you. :) Nice job- looking forward to pictures of your popopener...
