Why dink around? Go for it, be the best. It is worth whatever risk there is even if you fall short. You will be better.

Reminded me that I will be missing the Block the Sun 5k in Wisconsin Dells this weekend due to my foot injury.  This race raises 10s of thousands of dollars for skin cancer research.  Plus the course is super flat, fast, and really pretty.  The entry is quite low but many entrants collect pledges.  A very good race to travel to as one can plan a family day in the Dells around it.
