I officially completed my first race since making the decision to take up (short distance) running. The sad thing is, the last time I ran this one mile race (pre babies), I hadn’t trained at all and had a much better time. The good thing is, I ran the entire mile and got my best postpartum time yet! I finally broke 8 minutes (barely!!) with a time of 7:58. That may not sound too amazing, but it was exciting for me! I was the 2nd female in my age group (19-39) which means there wasn’t a whole lot of competition. haha!
Shout out to my 9 year old sister who ran the whole mile in 7 minutes 52 seconds!! Future track star in the making!! We ran some of our mile together which was pretty fun. She was verbally encouraging me while I could barely manage to give her a thumbs up. ha!
I was also pretty proud of our three year old, who steadily jogged the entire mile with Daddy. Her time was 13:35. She only stopped once for a quick water break. She wasn’t tired a bit at the end, while I was ready to pass out. Age…… haha!
