When I woke up yesterday morning I was thinking that the Groundhog run may be my new favorite race.
It started at 10 - yay for sleeping in and having plenty of time to download some tunes,
make some breakfast (blueberry, banana, walnut oatmeal),
and hang out with the fam.
It also took place in temperature controlled caves, which meant I was able to test out the running skirt that Santa brought me.
Then, I started the race and realized how hard 10ks are. The distance is just short enough that you can push yourself the entire race.
Before starting I saw a girl with a shirt on that read, “To give less than your best is to sacrifice the gift."
I had big plans to “just run” the race, but once I read that I felt like I needed to run fast. So, I did, at least for me.
I beat my 10K PR from this race two years ago (<—throwback post!) by a few seconds (unofficially). Needless to say, my legs are super sore today.
I arrived hone to a hungry family, so we went out to Mexican for lunch. The rest of the day was pretty productive - grocery shopping, cleaning my car (inside and out!), making dinner, and playing outside with my love.
I feel like some weekends come and go with nothing to show for them, but I think we squeezed as much out of this weekend as we could.
Cheers to that!
