It's kind of embarrassing to post stuff specifically about me but...
I'm proud of myself and excited about my first race plus it's a great way to send my mom pictures. "Hi Mom!"
On Saturday after our company left I was sick as a dog. Why does this matter? Well it doesn't really except that I had entered myself and my two running pals in our first 10 km trail race. We were all set and here I was puking up a lung. UGGG!
I set the alarm super early so that I would know for sure if I could do it and all seemed well. Must have been a 24 hour bug. Maybe my body was on it's own cleanse? Who knows? I had hubby pray for me and I woke up all better - yay!
Lucky for us it's just a local trail race, so no chips etc because being the brain surgeons that we are, we
1. got there late
2. parked in the wrong parking lot
3. had to run 2 -3 km just to get to the race start
4. were not on the list of runners (okay so this one was NOT my fault)
But all this aside...
WE DID IT!!
Ange, the most competitive of our little bunch ran ahead of the group and finished 9 mins before us, that's why she's not in these end of race photos.
Randa and I got caught behind tons of hill walkers on the first 5 km and finished in 64 mins
Not bad for our first race I thought!
I had such a great time! The next one is the 24th so wish us luck and less snow:)
