The first 5k was
My plan for this series was to take it easy on the first race and push myself more on the second race. But one of the things I've learned about running is plans change. Right?
The weekend of the second 5k in the series came around and my husband decided to go out to the hunting cabin to do some work before the seasons kick off. Hindsight: at that very moment I should have gone online and registered Brooklyn to run with me the following morning. I didn't. And it's my own fault. We didn't get there by 6:30 to get her registered. That was fine. Again, it was my own fault. But I realized just how much I love running because I was nearly in tears that not only was I not getting to run but I wasn't getting to run a race with my mini. She was actually really excited about doing it with me. Several weeks before, I told my husband I actually wanted to just go be a spectator one day and watch when the really fast people coming running in, so I guess I got my opportunity. Spoiler alert....they look just like regular runners only they make it look super easy! It was nice cheering for friends and strangers as they made their way across the finish line. We even got some pics afterwards.
Next up is the 5 miler recap. Anyone else run a series like this? Or run this series? Anyone prepping for St Jude this December?
