Summit 5K Course "Dry Run"


So, that's the profile of Saturday's race. I've obviously obsessed about it, driving it, jogging it and mapping it on various software. But, at least being very local, it was an option available to me! I jogged it this morning. Some people might call that a "dry" run, but there was nothing dry about it, as it rained on me the entire time!

Anyway, that last hill just after mile 2 is unkind and in an unfriendly spot for a 5K. The good news is, there won't be any surprises for me, and there is zero risk of my getting lost!

Good luck on Saturday! You will do awesome - I just know it :-) You will blast that hill & I bet you're gonna PR...!

Thanks, Sharon! We'll see about that PR.. but I am committed to do my best out there. However, they have updated the forecast to include a 100% chance of rain that morning. One thing is for sure--I am definitely "trained" for rain! Though I won't complain too much.. I know several runners who would eagerly trade their injuries to run a race in the rain. If I start thinking I am miserable, I will remind myself how blessed I am to be healthy and running again.

Hope you are doing well easing back into it! --Alex

Wow. That's the elevation chart for the course? Nice.

Good luck!

Jesse, Yeppers. Apparently, no one has ever heard of a flat 5K in Kansas City. There must be some law against them.... Thanks for the well wishes! --Alex

Best of luck Alex! I'm guessing you're on the course at this moment. And hey, do not let any nearby Dairy Queens distract you ;)

Oh, Daryl, So funny that you said that! In my warm up, i was a half block from that very DQ at least a half dozen times!! --Alex
