This post was originally part of Episode 505 released in December of 2017 and is more or less copy and pasted from that post. The audio, however, is a new take on the topic that is actually quite different than my original thoughts on annual mileage goals.

I have a feeling that today’s quick tip might be a bit controversial.

The Start of the 2015 Carol Marsh Kids to Camp 5k

The 2015 Carol Marsh Kids to Camp 5k

This past weekend, I ran in the 3rd Annual Carol Marsh Kids 2 Camp 5k.

I’ve run the race each of the past 3 years, and last year I actually won the race, so I was technically “defending my title” this year.

This race is a fundraiser for the Neighborhood Ministries of First UMC here in Lakeland to help send kids to summer camp that couldn’t otherwise afford it. And since my wife is the director of Neighborhood Ministries, there is a pretty good chance I’ll keep running this race on an annual basis.

I had low expectations for myself going into the race, as I’m in way worse shape than I was last year, so I knew a PR was out of the question. Instead of worrying about my time, I was going to run more strategically, and really race the other runners in an attempt to win the race for the 2nd straight year.
