My first race since the half marathon was yesterday, the Run for Joe, a 5k in honor of a local soldier who was killed fighting for our country.
Last year I ran this race and I got second place for all the women with a time of 22:57. I was so surprised to do that well!
That was literally the beginning of my running journey. So much has changed since then! I would say for the good 🙂
I had toast with pb and banana before the race and I think that is my super power food. I got there, registered, talked to some friends,
went to the bathroom, and we were off! I seriously felt like I sprinted the whole race. 3.1 miles is nothing compared to 13.1!
I finished in 20:31! A new PR by well over two minutes! I won overall women too!
I was not expecting to win. It was a wonderful surprise!
I felt like I could’ve gone faster. I wasn’t even tired at the end. I want to break 20!! I am so excited for cross country 😀 and summer races! I just want to race!
After the run I inhaled at least a dozen donut holes (I deserved them!) and then mom and I headed over to my step grandpas. I’m planting a garden there this year and we went to plan it! Then I found out that he grows asparagus (what?!) and it was ready! I had no idea how asparagus grows- right out of the ground and you just snap it and pick it!
We won’t be buying asparagus for quite awhile 😉 or any veggies, once I start growing!
Do you have a garden? What do you grow?
Have you ever won a race? Age group?
5 more days of school! 😀
