A do-over from last year: ERR 10k

For those of you that have been reading for a while, you may remember my less-than-fabulous race in the Elizabeth River Run 10k last year.  I was under-trained, overly-ambitious and hot.  
This year, I plan to redeem myself in this fabulous local race.  It's been running for years (started in 1979) and is a very popular local event.  It's a great course that winds along the Elizabeth River through Olde Towne Portsmouth .  As far as I'm concerned, it's a fabulous way to kick off Memorial Day weekend

Here's my approach for this year's event:
* Run with lots o' friends!  Last year, I knew no one but I made friends with the fabulous mother-daughter duo Allie and Sunshine!  This year, I'll be running with some buddies and colleagues. 
* Celebrate one year friend-iversary with Allie woohoo! 
* Enjoy the course
* Crush it and PR!  It's been a while since I've raced a 10k so I am overdue for a PR. 
* Sparkle...I'll be rocking my favorite pink Team Sparkle skirt.  Sparkle=speed...duh!

Hope you all have a fabulous Memorial Day weekend and enjoy some BBQs and long runs!  Are you racing over the holiday weekend?
