|This is what it looked like out of the car|
window as we waited for the race to start.
The race started a little after 8am this morning and I settled into a very comfortable 5:50 pace right from the start. I kept telling myself not to push it. I stayed right at this pace until I hit the 4k mark and then I dropped to 5:30 pace and passed a few people (is it wrong that I smile every time I pass someone)? I felt strong near the end and even remained in good running form (which I've been trying to watch) as I came through the finish lane. The finishing time was 28.32 and the best time I've run this particular course. Heather was able to run a PB...way to go!!!
|The face is because Heather was gabbing and I wanted|
a pic. LOL
As soon as I arrived home, I popped an English muffin in the toaster and sat back to relax and get warm.
So there you have it, Heather and I ran 2 races this weekend, woke up super early on our days off, and trudged through the rain. Tomorrow is Canada Day and I am officially sleeping in. Next race on my list is the Windsor 5k in 3 weeks where I ran my 5k PB next year.
What is your next race??
What do you usually eat as your snack after you race/run?
