Happy New Years guys! I hope everyone had a really awesome night and is just as excited about the New Year as I am!
A couple days before the New Year, a co-worker of mine asked me if I wanted to join a team for a 5k race coming up in March. Before thinking about it, I said yes; mostly because I didn’t have a race lined up for March. After I’ve been thinking more and more about it, I’ve started to become really nervous. At most, I run with one other person so I’m really not used to running in a group. I also feel that I have a slower pace than my teammates, and I really don’t want to slow anyone down.
There’s a total of nine people on the team. I’m currently looking for a sub 30:00 time, which would be a pr for me. I’m hoping that the urge to pr will be sufficient enough to be able to keep up with my peers.
This is more of a vent than anything. Does anyone have any advice for someone who hasn’t ran a team run before and isn’t as fast as her teammates?
