Thoughts on the Partnership for the Arts 5K

The Partnership for the Arts have a 5K scheduled this Saturday, September 8. I was looking forward to this run. I participated in this event last year and I really enjoyed it. That was the first time I had done any running in quite a long time. I have enjoyed running in the past and it sparked me to run two other events.

Last year I was in the middle of the pack. I felt okay with that since I had done nothing in prepiration.  I had told the other runs I did was about the same. I was alittle ashamed by the next few events because I know better. My job and the kids schedules really throw a wrench in my plans or at lest I use that for my excuse.

This year is looking the same if I get to do the event  at all. I thought this week at least I would go over and walk/run the course. Well our weather has not been cooperative. It has been raining for the past week. I don't mean a little rain I mean pouring. We have had over four inches of rain just over the weekend. I am afraid my job is going to hinder me too. I find it amusing that we have been on short time since May and not worked a Friday in months but I think we are working this Friday. That will not work out for me since the Run starts at 7:00 am and I don't punch out until 7:00am. Go figure!

I'm being hopeful and not ruling it out yet. I'm hoping to be able to share how it all works out. I would love to show you some pictures of the course that has been layed out through the town of Stuart. It is begins at Dehart Park in Stuart, then it follows through a nice neighborhood on Sunset Drive. I will tell you that Sunset Drive is quite the hill. We will then run back up Main Street. Main Street is a good, steep hill. Last we make our way back to the park. The town of Stuart is almost all a hill and that adds to the difficulty of this 5K.

Well maybe it won't be a washout and maybe I'll have some pictures to go along with my post. Thanks for stopping by . Have a blessed Day.
