I have a very important post for you this morning.
Brooke’s first race recap.
I am pretty sure this may have been 5 of the best minutes of my life.
We woke up at 7 Saturday morning and Brooke had pancakes for breakfast. I ran three miles on the treadmill, did some weights and then we got Brooke all ready and drove on over to the starting line.
She started off with some stretches, strides and dynamic drills;)
We then made sure to double-knot her running shoes.
And then we were off and Brooke held my hand almost the entire time. We took a few walking breaks and Brooke stayed strong. She used her mantra, “my legs are not tired.” It works every time for her.
She did a final sprint towards the finish line and she crossed like a champ.
.25 miles (I thought it was .5 miles but I was wrong) and we had a blast doing it together. She said she wanted to do another one which made my heart happy.
The medal is pretty sweet and she was stoked about it.
They even had a bounce house at the end which was the perfect reward for her after her hard work out there on the pavement.
We even got to meet some cute blog readers that rocked their half-marathon!
And Bree did too!!! Overall, it was such a fun experience! I am hoping this is our new Halloween tradition!
And of course we made sure to get in some serious trick-or-treating at night.
We stopped at Mer’s house first.
Then we went to my parents’ house and met up with my sister and her kiddos. It is so fun taking Brooke trick-or-treating in the same neighborhood that I did as a kid!
Steak, noodle and veggie Pho to end the night after eating way too much candy.
How was Halloween for you?
Ever had Pho… do you love it too?
How has your running been this weekend? Details PLEASE!!
