Okay my bloggy friends - I need some advice. I have a 20k next weekend and then a half marathon on April 1st. There is a cool local race this weekend that I wasn't planning to run, but I have a fear of missing out on this fun race. Doesn't help that I looked at last year's results and if they have a similar turn out I could potentially place in my age group... knowing that I couldn't go out and run a "fun run."
I really need to get in a practice long run this Saturday afternoon. I normally run in the morning, the 20k is at noonish, and has no bathrooms on course, so I REALLY need to get my stomach figured out before then.
A couple of other factors: the race is $25 (which seems high for a 5k) and I have several friends running it (not that I would run with, but we could hang out/chat before and after).
All that being said... WHAT DO I DO?!?!
