My second 5K race is in less than 3 days! I'm excited! My plan was to run this morning, rest tomorrow, rest Wednesday morning, and run Wednesday night. I had pain in my right ankle, though, which is the ankle I've sprained, broken, and have swelling in, so I thought it best to finish the loop I was on by walking and not do any more running and only necessary walking until the race. It's not worth injuring my ankle again just to have one more day of training. I know I can do this distance; I do it five times a week and have done so for many months!
I'd love to see you at the Jingle Bell Run http://www.boleycenters.org/special-events/jingle-bell-run
You don't have to register. You can just show up and walk or run, but you won't get a Tshirt or a goodie bag. I hear this is a very crowded run, and that it's more of a social occasion than a serious race. That's okay. I'm treating it as a serious run, but I know there will be walkers, strollers, and dogs to contend with.
I'd love to see you on the sidelines too, if running or walking isn't your thing.
