Not my best but still a great race!
It was freaking cold today, that is the best way to describe it. I think at the start time the temperature was 35 degrees, what the heck?! It was like 60 two weeks ago at the last race.
Anyway, today made me realize that it doesn’t really matter how fast you go, finishing the race and then watching your family cross that finish line after you is the best feeling in the world. Even when its cold, you’ve watched three people barf (yeah), and you are 31 seconds slower than last year.
But hey, I’m proud of my 1:03:00 people! WOOOO HOOOO! Leave it to me to get an even number 😉
I kicked some pretty good butt for not training nearly as much this year as last year. I hadn’t even run 6 miles yet, the most I’d done is 4. I took 30 second walk breaks at each water stop which I know slowed me down a bit but if I hadn’t done that I honestly think finishing out the race might’ve been harder.
I’m definitely a 5K girl. The first 3.5 miles went by smoothly, it was the second half that was hard to get through. But I did it!
Here are some photos I took today, I’ll update more later when I’ve eaten and rested a bit…
I’m off to eat some Indian food with my best friend and then do some perusing at the library. Couldn’t really ask for a better Saturday. Hope you all enjoy yours too 🙂 Thanks for reading and being there for me.
