Citizens Run Against Cancer -5K

Do you guys know me by now? My life is never normal or routine at all. 🙄 My littlest girl got sick last week which would in turn pass down to me. I was told and asked not to go to this race, but I just couldn’t not go… I felt like death, I didn’t get my watch to start tracking until about 5 min into the race but I finished it and that’s all that matters.

 There was a chance of rain and we got lucky because it all cleared up when the race started. I didn’t PR at all if anything I did worse but I felt like my heart was going to explode. It wasn’t worth me dying to go all out so when I got tired I stopped jogging and started walking. The town is a little historic town so it was beautiful to take the scenery in. I will 100 percent do the half marathon next year because you get to really go into the historic district with all the old Victorian homes. 

According to my chip my official finish time was 40:35 or a 13:04 mile. I finished number 19 in my age group. I’m pretty proud of myself and I’m pretty sure this race started something! It was SO much fun even if I did feel terrible. I have to admit my embarrassing moment though… I would like to blame the DayQuil but maybe it was a newbie mistake too? 🤷🏼‍♀️ I ran up to the time list and I saw my name was 3rd in its little grouping so I was thought maybe I got 3rd in my division. I was excited thinking I was going to get a fancy finisher medal… 🤦🏼‍♀️ Nope, gotta werk a little harder. Lol I don’t make this crap up… it’s just how my life is.
