Day # 156 ~ a.m. run ~ fog city
This morning while I was running my little wake-up-make-sure-life-doesn't-get-in-the-way run, I could not stop thinking that the highlight of my weekend was the race.
Should I feel quilty that I selfishly feel that way?
Getting to share another race experince with my Hubbs and kiddos was amazing!
Here is our experince in photos:
Waiting near the front of the pack.
Over 160 runners showed up for our little local event.
20th Anniversary of an event will help boost the numbers!
My first mile was 7:20. I held pretty steady the entire race (7:32 pace).
I held the lead for the first half of the race but simply didn't have the push for the last two hills (go ahead say it, over trained under rested!). I allowed just a little too much distance to get between me and the other runner. I gave it everything on the last strech but did not have enough distance to catch her.
46:46 ~ Second
I'll take that on Day # 153
Hubbs took over 2 minutes off his time in two weeks!
I set a 5 year PR for the distance and course!
Once you've been running for decades it's hard to compare your current running with what you were able to do when you were younger...and childless.
Yes. That is LBM laying on the pavillion floor still in his pjs.
Do you see the donut I was eating! Yummy!
okay half of it went into the trash because that was just tooo much sugar even for me.
There was a giant cake to celebrate the anniversary of the race. LBM loved it and helped eat 2 pieces!
Our race director is a wonderful woman. Who works very hard to put on a smoothly ran event.
This races benefits our local Love INC chapter.
LBM helped us both get our medals.
Hubbs was very pleased with how he felt on his run and thanked me for signing us up.
I read that as an invitation to find more race for us to do together, wouldn't you?
S'ghetti girl was busy making friends and begging to hit the play ground.
After awards we played on the play ground with the kiddos. We just had to reward great racing support.
Thanks to my BIL who watched the kids while we raced!
It was a great morning in a beautiful place doing my very favorite thing with my favorite people!
What did you do with your favorite people over the weekend?
