So I ran my first (and last???) 5K of the year. Ok, it may not be my last but it's just so annoying that I feel like I can't go and can't train because I need to take care of the kids. But that's a whole 'nother post in and of itself.
So the night before SUCKED. Taylor woke up and ended up sleeping with us in bed and Emily woke up like 3 times. Ugh. So I hardly got ANY sleep at all. Alarm went off and I so did not want to go. After about 30 mins I forced myself to get up, got dressed (didn't bother with a shower since I took one the night before) and headed out the door in like 10 mins. Got to Huntington Beach and parked almost in the same spot I parked at last time. I was about 3 blocks from the start line. =) Gotta love that. But it was 52 degrees and I was freezing. I learned my lesson the year before and since it was only 5:30 when I got there (the start time of the race was 6:50am) I sat in my car for almost an hour. It was kinda nice until I started dozing towards the end. Woops!
I went to the start line, then found the restrooms and bascially only had to wait about 40 mins until I started running the race. Considering I haven't ran since my last 5K in August of last year (YIKES that was what almost 6 months ago!) I think I did pretty good! I finshed at 38:59! Under 40 mins. Yeah!!!! My personal best record is 38:20 at my last race. Just think if I had actually trained. I would LOVE to do 10 min miles but not sure if I will accomplish that anytime soon. Once the kids get older I'm sure I can train better. Having a 4 year old and 2 2 year olds is HARD! So anyway, I'm actually very happy with my time. Until the next one!
