|Isn't it beautiful? It's BRAND NEW!|
To make sure I was as prepared as possible, I actually brought my Magic Bullet and a serving of Shakeology to Fargo with me so I could eat what my body is used to eating before a run.
Laurel and I ran together and Ethan trailed behind on his own. His time ended up being better than mine was last year, which I consider an injustice as he barely trained at all; I trained for five months! My time was about 33 minutes. I was surprised my time wasn't faster; it felt like it had gone by SO quickly! I was shocked every time I saw another mile marker and I almost never felt winded. Perhaps it was because it was so congested? Oh well. I was really proud of Ethan for running it. He claims he only did it because he had to be there anyway, but I'm still proud of him!
|Look how excited I am in my poncho before the race!|
The poncho actually ended up being an awful idea. It only drizzled and ended up not being that cold, so I was hot and uncomfortable for almost the entire time. Bonus suckage: the sleeves had elastic at the wrists; sweat and water pooled at my elbows and I had to empty my sleeves out every mile or so. It was disgusting.
|I received three medals|
one for the 5k, one for the 10k
and a special one for doing them both.
