Reindeer Run 5K

Saturday was a big day for me... I ran our local reindeer run... And I finished FIRST in my age group!!! This is a first for me! (Pun intended) 

No matter how many races I run I still wake up with butterflies the morning of the run. I had not been running too much the week before, due to Michael getting home and the weather. So needless to say I really did not know how the run was going to turn out. When I woke up on Saturday there was a constant slow rain coming down, thankfully it wasn't too cold. 

When I arrived at the race my favorite running moms were there!


This group of mommas has and is amazing! They are my true motivators, confidonts, encouragers and friends! 

When the race began I was actually feeling pretty good. So I kept running till my watch beeped for the first mile and I looked down to see 7:33. This is not normal for me! But I kept running and gave it all I had. After all there were only 2 miles left.  My official time was 24:17, which was only 19 seconds faster than my last 5K, but still faster!

By mile 3 I was so glad to be done, but also proud of myself for running and setting a PR for myself. 


Now I am ready for the next race!
