5K in 28:49.

Another 5K under my belt!

This one was a St. Paddy’s race in Deer Park, which pretty much wound up meaning that we ran around the mall. Luckily, it was a gorgeous day, so still a very enjoyable experience. Sarah and I eagerly signed up when the race was set for beautiful Long Grove, so the change of venue was a bit of a bummer. But hey—I’ll give the relatively flat course and all paved paths some credit for a new PERSONAL RECORD! Woot woot! Came in just under 29 minutes for the first time: 28:49!

We went out to breakfast at Long Grove Cafe after breakfast with our cheerleaders aka moms. A little taste testing at the Olive Tap followed. I am so NOT a morning person and can be found lazing in bed until 11am on many a weekend morning, but sometimes it feels awesome to have worked out and dined before then! Even with the loss of an hour, we rocked you, March 11th!
