Last Thursday I woke up early and was not feeling great! I felt ok enough to still run my race though. I met up with 2 of my friends for the lovely 5 mile race. It was pretty chilly to start, so we stayed in the car as long as possible.
After a potty break we headed to the start line! There were a TON of people around so getting to the start line was a bit nutty.
The race started and we were off. It was a little rough going. The chilly air along with not feeling great or being able to breath that well. I knew I have been training my butt off, so I knew my legs could deal with the 5 miles, but it would be a struggle.
Mile 1 I plodded along. Then started up a hill! And then down a hill! Then on the feeder road of the highway and next through a neighborhood. We looped around and went back up and down the hill. At that point I was really feeling it in my lungs, but knew I was close.
My friends I ran with are super fast runners, so they waited for me near the finish line. We ran together and I finished strong!
Def slower than my last 5 mile race, but I finished!
Did you run a turkey trot? How was the rest of your Thanksgiving?
