I’ve signed up for another race and I’m super, super excited about this one! As in… this is the only race I’ve ever talked about for months before even registering!
I’ve signed up for the Harvard Pilgrim “Finish on the 50” 10k! Why am I so excited about this race, you ask? Two reasons:
- I’m finally believing in myself enough to do a 10k. They even have a 5k option and I’m choosing to step it up to the longer distance!
- (and the stronger of the two reasons) It ends on the fifty yard line of Gillette Stadium in Patriot’s Place!
I feel like this, so far, is my year of sports themed races. I’ve already signed up for a race that ends at home base in Fenway Park – which I affectionately call (while bastardizing the name) the Race to Home Base. However, why is the Finish on the 50 more thrilling? Well, I live in RedSox Nation, but (and I’m sorry if I offend anyone) baseball has too many games in a season to keep my attention. But I love the Patriots! (and you can read about my antics at a Patriot’s game here)
I am so excited to get to run on the field! So, so excited! I’m nerding out for certain!
Right, so now I need to take that excitement and turn it out with some running! I should get on training! July will be here before I know it.
