Week 8, Day 3

Ok I’m so late on posting!!! But better late than never!! I ran a 5k 11/8.

The weather was great and I pushed Liam. We made it in 32:44! The first 1.7 miles was uphill. 😦 Yeah pushing a stroller up the hill and not having the best uphill legs it sucked. I walked a bit up the hill. But going down was AWESOME!!! The only thing I’m bummer about is the fact that our stroller back wheels get ridiculously shakey if I start going to fast. This is totally awesome when I’m trying to pace myself during a practice run. But during a race it is awful. I love downhills and do great at them!!!! (Remembering back to Ragnar Colorado this past summer- my 10.5 miles down Vail pass was AWESOME!!!! I felt so free. I’ve never felt like that before on a run. I’ve gotten close. But 10.5 downhill was amazing!!!)

Shakey wheels or not I’m happy with my effort and time!!!

Week 1, Day 4!

I had a 10k race today. I ran with my mom and L. I pushed L in the stroller and by the end of it I think we had 50% tears and 50% happy, giggling, and talking from L. That was the longest I’ve ever pushed him before, I think, but it was an awesome feeling of accomplishment when I was done! It was slower than last years 10k, but only be two minutes. So I’ll take it! Today I am hoping to go pick up a bike from my friend, Mar. Just need to figure out if it’s going to fit in my car and then I need to buy a helmet!!!!!! Yay Tri-Training!
