When torn between choices A or B, chose A and B.
Don't you love when it's that easy?
I thought about it during the week and committed to the decision to run the race with E. I appreciated all your comments on my dilemma. She's only going to be this small once, so I need make the most of these opportunities.
The race was actually billed as a 5 and 10K. I didn't realize the 5k portion started at 8:00, not simultaneously with the 10K at 8:30, until I get there race morning. So I did what any type A person would do. Entered both races. I satisfied my competitive side by running the 5K by myself, and finished in 1st place for my age group in 21:12. After crossing the finish line I grabbed a bottle of water, quickly swapped out my number, and took DD from my mom. Then I ran the 10K pushing her. We stayed relaxed and finished in 57:37.
This wasn't a 5K PR for me, but it is in line with the times I was running Pre-E. There was a spring left in my step, and I felt like I had plenty more to give during the 10K, so I'm feeling pretty confident going into the half marathon next week.
So that's how we spent our St. Paddy's day. E's not really into bar hopping.
Did you do anything special to celebrate?
