Good evening. I am posting a bit late tonight
This morning, I ran the Sunrise Shuffle 5k with Danny, my stepmom, and my sister-in-law. We also ran this race last year. It’s nice because it’s literally about 5 minutes away from our house.
The race course is the mall parking lot which is a pretty boring course but I usually don’t pay too much attention to the course anyway. I am more focusing on not falling over while running.
Jacob checking out the Hot Wheels Camaro. Can you believe that he’ll be driving in only four years?!
The morning started out pretty chilly, and I debating running in my jacket. I tend to warm up fast when I am running so I decided not to wear it and that ended up being a good choice.
My right leg hurt everywhere - my quad, my hip, my glute, so I went into the race planning on doing what I could. I just wanted to run to run. My quad burned a lot the last half of the race and I really wanted to give up in those last 5 minutes but I pushed on. I ended up finishing the race faster than I did last year! 31:38. That’s 11 seconds better than last year.
I was very happy with my time especially with an injury. My sister-in-law also did great and Danny and my stepmom both placed in their age groups and won medals!
I also ran into one of the other athletes from the Zooma half marathon, Tiffany, at the race. She did awesome and placed first for her age group!
It was a great morning to run and I really enjoyed the race. It’s a smaller race, but it’s fun and well organized.
Afterwards, I had to stop for some white chocolate pumpkin coffee from Dunkin Donuts. So good.
In the afternoon, we went to my grandparent’s house to watch the Bears game – unfortunately, they lost. Now we’re home, relaxing, and getting ready to watch Once Upon a Time and The Amazing Race.
- What did you do today?
- Do you watch any Sunday night tv shows?
