Chip time: 31:34
(which is what I count because I was at a 2 minute standstill at the start)
I have been up since 6:30am working race registration and then I did the run! I always get anxious before a race and I peed twice within 30 minutes before the race started...
Anyways, I was fine with the race! The last hill was grueling, but I had so much adrenaline. Plus, ACDC's "Shook Me All Night Long" was blaring in my ears. I never, ever run with earphones but it helped me focus especially once I separated from my friend. It kept distractions away from my mind and it gave me my moment to just run the race, for me, like I originally planned.
5ks are getting to be easier, which is exciting. Maybe I will be ready for the Rock'n'Roll Half come September!
My running attire for the race (this was taken post-race, no way was I taking a picture at 6:30am).
Top: Avia (blue long sleeve), Nike (short sleeve purple, underneath), Aerie (sports bra).
Bottom: Under Armour Coldgear Compression Tights.
Honestly, I was dressed PERFECTLY for the weather. I debated whether or not to take my vest and I'm so glad I left it behind. Less is more when running a race, everyone!
I'm very thankful for my body and it allowing me to run this race with zero complications! I'm also thankful for my friend who I ran beside for about half of the run. Today was a great day!
I came home and stretched my achy muscles to "thank" them.
Now, I must go catch some ZZzzzs because I am opening tonight at the mall for Midnight Black Friday MADNESS!
Stay fit, healthy and full of food and happy Thanksgiving!
