Signed up for a 5K race on September 25

My grandson is taking swimming lessons, and his swimming group is sponsoring a 5K run on September 25 to raise money for charity. I thought I'd support him, so I signed up for the race. I specified a small size for the T-shirt so I can give the shirt to my grandson. I'm assuming it will be a cotton T-shirt, and I never wear cotton T-shirts when I run. I thought the grandson would like to have it since the race is sponsored by his swimming group.

Yesterday I timed myself for 3 miles, and it took an hour. That time included several rest stops. I'm hoping during the race I can finish in 45 minutes. The race starts at 8 am, so the temperature should be in the 50s or low 60s. I'll be doing 4 miles per run by then, and I hope I can go a bit faster during the shorter run and do it in 45 minutes. We'll see.
