Twenty-six days. Twenty-six days until the Soldier Field 10 Mile. I ran a couple of days this week, but not enough to be on a consistent training schedule. I have a training schedule, I just haven't been following it. It's not that I don't like running. . .even though I don't feel like it sometimes once I start I'm glad I did. Just been hard trying to fit it into life lately. I know, I know, you have to make time for it. I just haven't been that good at it lately.
But, with 26 days until the Soldier Field 10 Mile, panic is starting to set in. That's a good thing for me because I tend to become more focused with panic and a looming deadline.
On Saturday, I'm running the Chicago Police Run to Remember 5k. Not worried about that one although I would like to get a fairly decent time and not come in at the end of the pack. The Race has special meaning as my dad is a retired Chicago cop. My uncle is a retired Chicago cop and my cousin (and mile sponsor) Kevin is a homocide detective. So I guess you can say the Chicago Police is part of our family. So support the cops ok?
Speaking of support, thank you to my friend and co-worker Judy Anderson and her mom (and cancer survivor!) Heidi Liebig for their donations to the American Cancer Society. More motivation exactly when I need it!
