30 min easy-paced run
Hello everyone! As you all know from last week's post (click here to read it), I ran my first race since giving birth on Saturday morning. The Tour of the Gables 5K turned out to be a great race. The weather was ideal and the crowd was eagerly cheering for all the runners.
So, I woke up early on Saturday morning and began my racing preparations at around 5:30 am (this is what happens when you have a baby). My coach and I decided this would be a "training" race, so I literally ran to the starting line of the race from my house. That was basically my warm-up.
After a 2 mile warm-up, I arrived to the start of the line and I stretched out my legs. I also did some running drills to get my muscles warmed up and moving. At exactly 7:30 am the gun was fired and off I went.

By 7:49 am, I was crossing the finish line. My finish time was 19:12 minutes and I was the 2nd female overall to cross the finish line. I was very pleased with my performance.

I'm very excited with Saturday's outcome. I am very optimistic for my future performances, so wait and see me at future races!!!
How was your weekend?
I am grateful for all
my improvements in running.
