- Mainly I want to finish the race without stopping. The only reason I every stop in a race is because of a cramp and the only way for me to avoid them is to drink a lot of water/coconut water and to try to keep my breathing even. For some reason I am very prone to side cramps.
- I want to finish under 1 hour! I have done this during practice a few times so I know it's possible.
- Work on my pre-race nerves so that my stomach doesn't freak out on me. Since I have an unpredictable stomach, I usually take Imodium on race days. I totally sound like an old lady saying this but it really helps me.
- Have fun. I really want to enjoy my first 10k and I hope that finishing will give me the drive to train for a half marathon for next year.

Hey everyone! Well it's the day before my 10k and I've been sitting here thinking about what I want to get out of my race.
