I ran a 5-mile race with my wonderful in-laws on Sunday morning, which was a) long and b) hot. I’m proud because I ran the whole darn thing, felt like giving up 3 times (and talked myself out of it), and I ran a 9:44 mile. That’s super speedy for me!
There was celebrating all around since we all finished in good time, but there was a great surprise at the end–my mama-in-law and I both placed in our age groups! That’s a first for both of us.
Full disclosure is that there was only one other person in my age group, but hey, I’m still celebrating. I’m mostly proud that I ran faster than usual over more miles than usual–and it’s pretty sweet to have a medal to remember it by!
Next up is this beautiful/challenging/hope we make it to the finish line run, with my mama-in-law. I’m so thankful to have wonderful running buddies and a body that works well enough to run! Peace, friends.
