Advice About 5k talk some sense into me...

Here's the thing...the race is May 9, and I'm not really finished with my training schedule until May 15. I'd really prefer to run the original 5K (it supports are great organization...google "Girls on the Run" and check them out). But I also want to give myself the best opportunity to run well. I'm thinking in reality I need to wait and do the Memorial Day run. But my heart really wants to do the other (can you tell that?). I can register for a "lower price" before May 1, but even register the day of the run if I need to. Those of you who've done this program or who have gone from doing nothing (essentially) to running a 5K, is it asking too much to push myself through the training a little faster to get to my goal for May 9? I've thought about assessing myself at the end of April and deciding then. Give me some non-emotionally charged advice, please. I think my brain knows the right answer, but my heart isn't listening right now. Maybe it will listen better after my run today

My Gallery I scrap with Photoshop CS6, but can help with older versions: PS7, CS2 & CS4.

The point is to raise money for the cause, and have a good time.
You're not in the military, where they are timing you and can throw you out if you don't meet their standard.
Getting in shape has to have an element of fun, or you'd give it up too soon.
Seriously, run to where you are in the program, and walk the rest. You might discover the adrenaline will carry you through till the end of the 5K.
