Twilight 5K Race Re-cap

Today's Workout:
4 easy-paced miles

Hello everyone! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend. I had a pretty relaxing weekend overall. The hubs and I went out on Friday night and met up with some friends in Brickell, then we went to the Miami Zoo with Myles on Saturday (click here to see the pictures of us!).

Sunday seemed like such a long day. I woke up early as usual, but I didn't want to do anything too tiring so that I wouldn't be exhausted for the race at night. So, the hubs, Myles and I went to church in the morning and then we spent the rest of the day at the house.

I did some sensory play with Myles, which included homemade play dough and homemade goo.

After a few hours, I got ready and headed to the Twilight 5k race. I got there a bit early and did a 2 mile warm-up. The race started at 7 pm.

The race went pretty well and I finished in 19 minutes and 24 seconds and I was the 2nd place female. It was hot and humid and it rained during the race, so it made the race a bit challenging. I am very happy with my performance, however.  I felt strong and confident. 

Stay tuned for my next 5k on July 4th! I'm going to beat my time of 19:24!!!! 

How was your weekend?

I am grateful for good friends.
