First 5k RACE tomorrow!!

Hey everyone! I am set to run in my first 5k race ever tomorrow! I did a "trial run" through the race path and things went fairly well! Pace is so very slow (I gave up on going super fast after a little scare with my feet that kept me from running for about 2 weeks. Nothing crazy, but I definitely dont want to be on the injury couch for longer than that!

But I am back up and running (quite literally) and am excited about the race tomorrow morning! It's supposed to rain... so that should make it even more interesting and memorable!!!
