Cinco de Mayo 5k
Finish time = 39:46 (12:50/mile pace)
I started the morning shivering at Pioneer Square with Ken & Jessica wondering where the sun disappeared to. Within the first quarter mile Jessica was long gone ahead of us (and she had a great race!), but Ken hung with me the entire way. We walked a handful of times, mostly because baby was wedged firmly in my side, causing something very similar to the worst side-ache ever. But for the majority of the course we trotted along at a nice conversational pace. Nothing very exciting to report.
Oh, if you're pregnant and running, get a support belt. I have one that is too small/ill-fitting and one that is too large. So I didn't wear one at all. And I would have killed for either of them today.
We wrapped up the morning with a yummy burrito and Lagunitas IPAs at the finish line. Well, Ken enjoyed the IPAs. I enjoyed imagining how delicious they tasted.
And then we saw a couple of girlfriends come in from the other distance events. Here we are with Jenn, who rocked the hilly half-marathon!
All-in-all it was a great race. Maybe if I can find another 5k this summer I'll be able to score a "pregnant PR" sometime in the next 4 months.
