Hermine, I thank you!!

The tropical depression, Hermine, dumped 2.8 inches of rain out here at my place. It also kept me from running yesterday as I've only a few roads and they were all flooded!
  I also felt rough yesterday....too much to do...too much caffeine...I crashed super hard! However!; I did manage a 45 minute run today. As I ran I strategized my race plan for tomorrow. In my younger days, (30's-40's) I'd run a 5K hard from beginning to end, basically all out. That's still my plan!!LOL!
  I don't consider this course PR friendly so I figure most the runners will be racing in the big city on the flat/fast course. Plus there are five races in the area this weekend, all 5K's!
  I intend to give it my all and see where I am in fitness. So far this week 22.1 miles. I expect around 4-5 total tomorrow. Have a great weekend! Peace!
