I did all of those things and I even finished 5th in my age group!
Now before you all get too excited, my age group had 33 people (so not huge) but I’m still very pleased (though I can’t help but feel a little bummed that I was 2 spots away from getting a medal). How cool would that have been?!
It was a great day for a run (or walk) and while the course was a little hilly, it wasn’t too bad and overall just a gorgeous course. After worrying I started off too quickly, I made sure to really tune into my body and how it was feeling and stuck with a pace that felt good. Turns out that pace was fast!
After sprinting across the finish line (I told you I felt good!), I found my dad, got some sips of my FitMixer amino and headed towards the school’s track and finished another 2 miles to meet my training run for the day. (I totally could have done the 10k…next time!) 😉
Overall a great morning, great race and great time. When’s the next race?
My mom even had a good time!
Have you ever run a race?
How did you do?
Yes I’m skipping Music Monday this week but yesterday’s run was too good to wait to share the results. But so that I don’t leave you totally hanging on some love for your ears – Remember when I talked about the new Mumford & Sons song I Will Wait? Well now that I’ve heard the whole album – go buy it, go listen to it. It.is.amazing! Amazing!
