Happy Mother’s Day to my incredible mom, grandma, mother-in-law and all of the amazing women in the world. I hope today that every woman feels celebrated for the love and help they give to everyone in their lives. Whether that be their nieces/nephews, their children, their students, their neighbors or their community… we are so lucky to have them all!
I’ll have my race recap up tomorrow but I ran a 19:31 for my 5k and was deep into the pain cave for about 19:20 of the race. I’m super excited about where I am right now with my speed and it’s time to get to work on a few goals that I have now (I’ll share more of those this week in a much longer post).
*After the race Brooke asked if it was finally her turn to run. She ran around for a little while and then asked me to race her… She won. My legs were fried after the race.
*Skye wanted in on the racing too.
*She is getting used to the race scene life.
*During the race I thought about how I am definitely not missing this kind of running…
*Right after my cool-down we went to watch Knox’s baseball game and the girls had fun running around the fields afterwards.
*We ran into a friend there. She owns CRUMBL in Saratoga Springs and had a box of cookies from her store with her and gave us all cookies. I will never say no to a free 3 inch thick cookie.
*I spent a lot of time in my recovery boots on the couch yesterday.
*Brooke was invited for a swim date with a friend. I think it might have been one of her favorite days ever.
*Skye tried her first ever Otter Pop and managed to eat 4% of it before dumping it all over the ground.
*Burgers (TJ’s sweet potato fries also once they finished cooking) and Richie Rich for a crazy Saturday night.
*That 5k wiped me out!
