This could be bad

A week from today, I will run (ehhh..actually probably walk, mostly) my...second? I think it will be my second 5k. My first 5k was horrible: I started out waaaaaay too fast and ended up crashing and burning. After that experience, I decided I could supp a 5k every now and then, but my real love was in longer distances, the half and especially 10ks are my faves.

True to form, this run could be very, very bad. I haven't run in weeks because of this nagging chest cold thing (but I have my heart set on trying it out tomorrow).

To add insult to injury, my husband and niece are going to run (ahem) this thing, too. It will be a first for both. Also, as if that weren't bad enough, my hubby hasn't run recently eithen because of a back injury (although it's tons better now, he says). And our niece isn't a fan of running anyway (but at least she's neither injured or sick at the moment); she's such a trooper.

Ohhh yeah. As if it couldn't possibly get any worse, right? Race "organization" and "information" is virtually nil. As in, nothing. As in, nobody knows anything and the people who should know, just ignore questions posted on Facebook.

Will there be race-day packet pickup? Nobody knows. Where can I park? Nobody knows. Water handed out afterwards? Nobody knows. Will there be porta-potties? Nobody. Freaking. Knows.

Did I mention this is the inaugural year? Yeah. They need to get it together. Quick. I'm getting kinda nervous here. At this point, I'm thinkin' getting there more than an hour early might be a good idea. Who knows what could happen.
