So I am beginning week 9 tomorrow and really looking forward to it. I am sure I'm no where near 5km, I've been aiming purely for the 30 mins of running. We have an annual race in Geneva called the Escalade live.escalade.ch/en which takes place on December 3rd. I have been and watched in the past and been in total awe that people can run that far! It is a great atmosphere and an event for the calendar for runners and non runners alike. There are runs for all different levels of ability so I've signed up for the beginners/fun 2 lap mixed race which is 4.8km. Part of me didn't want to have to wait a whole year before I could enter, but part of me is worried I've taken on too much too soon. I figure I can always walk if it is too much. I would have preferred to wait until I graduated to make up my mind, but the deadline for sign up is 1st November. Any words of wisdom out there for me? I am in shock that I've actually signed up for it. I guess if I'm really not ready by next month, I don't have to go. Have I lost the plot???
