The Dash and Splash 5k is complete.
Post race snack:
It wasn’t the best race for either Danny or me. I don’t even know what my official time was – it was 36 and some seconds. My excuse this time is that my legs were sore from boot camp yesterday. I always have an excuse as to why I’m such a slow runner.
Danny’s time was 24:54, which I thought was awesome, but he wasn’t happy with.
I have pretty much accepted the fact that I am a slow runner, but lately I have been wondering why I’m such a slow runner. I’ve been running for three years, since my first Muddy Buddy in 2009. Not serious running, but more for a hobby, exercise, and fun.
You would think after running for more than three years that my time would improve, but no, mine hasn’t. I have tight calves which making running difficult, but not impossible. I’ve done long runs, short runs, fun runs, speed work, and whatever else, but I never improve and I can’t figure out why. Maybe I don’t push myself hard enough? I feel like I do. Maybe I need someone to teach me how to run? I just honestly think my body wasn’t made for running.
On to better things…like food.
Last night, we went to Panera for dinner. I had the Mediterranean veggie sandwich and the classic salad. Every time I order the classic salad, I forget that I hate it. It tastes like grass. I used some poppy-seed dressing, and managed to eat it, but I have to remember to stop ordering it. But the Mediterranean veggie sandwich is my favorite sandwich ever.
Also speaking of food, I made the Funfetti dip my niece’s birthday party today, except I used the actual Funfetti cake mix instead of the confetti cake mix and it came out 10x better. Maybe 100x.
I also used plain yogurt instead of vanilla. This dip is awesome. I definitely recommend making it with the Funfetti rather than the confetti cake mix.
We’re off to my niece’s first birthday party! Have a great day!!
