Hawg 5k Run tomorrow

You never see Lexington BBQ on the list of healthy food for runners. I suppose there's a reason for that, which is why I'll be consuming quantities of it AFTER the race.

This will be the first barefoot race in which I'll endeavor to go fast. The cold might slow me down (looking like 40 degrees, but dry), but I'm going to start a little nearer to the front than usual and see if I can hang on. I've been getting close to a 7:30 pace on my local hills, and the race course is flat.

We'll see how it goes.

This was supposed to be the wife's first 5k, by the way. She's already finished two.

Tonight, we eat pizza. I like to get a basic frozen cheese pizza, top it with some chicken, roasted peppers, diced tomato, and pesto. That's a nice cheapo way to fancy it up a bit. That's right, I do cooking tips too.


  1. Cold is the one thing that worries me about barefootin'. Once my feet get cold, they stay cold. I hate when that happens... Good luck!

  2. Good luck and have a speedy race! Love the BBQ as well.

  3. Good luck. 40 and dry sounds like idea race conditions. I'm hoping to be able to do a 7:30 pace or so next month in a 5K.
