Tomorrow is the Point Bock 5 miler in Stevens Point, WI. It's sponsored by a tiny brewery that has some pretty huge significance in my life.
One look around my basement gives you an idea of how much I love Point stuff:

You know what Point stuff I'd really love to collect? An age group medal from this race.
Let me tell you what's not going to happpen. Getting an AG medal from this race:
|7:30 pace for 10th place? Yikes.|
I still have some pretty lofty goals:
I definitely want to PR. My 5 mile PR is a little over 40 minutes, and I know I can get sub-40 barring some unforseen disaster, but I really want to be under 39. More specifically, I want to keep my pace under 7:40/mile.
It's a flat out-and-back, and the weather is looking good: 22 degrees, sunny, and a little breezy.
A ton of my runner buddies will be there, and I expect to be celebrating some huge PRs after the race... but if we all end up sucking, at least there's the free beer.
And now, the winner of the Injinji giveaway:
