The Race started at 10 am. I left my house about 9:30 and did a 1.3 mile warm-up and did some drills.
The race started and we were off. I finished Mile 1 in 6:52. This was a good first mile for me.
The second mile I ran in 8:3?- I thought my legs were going to explode. The hill hurt so bad!It took a few minutes to get my legs back once I got to the top. The final mile was 7:33 with the .1 at 6:40 pace.

The day did get better even though I had calf cramps throughout the day........... We went to my step-son's soccer game and came home with a new dog. The dog was his Christmas gift a year and half ago and stayed at his mom's house. The puppy has now joined our household. The kids love her already!!!
and Mexican Spinach Artichoke Dip and then had an Awesome Chicken Salad. I had such a great Mother's day. I loved the home made gifts from Ally and Garrison and the hubby had the kids record their voices in a book and asked them questions. I LOVED it!!!!!

I gave up diet Pepsi for Lent. For those who know me this was quite difficult. It needed to be done though!!! I was drinking way too much diet soda!! I have discovered a new love for ice tea and water! Hopefully, I can be good and keep my inhalation of Diet Pepsi to one a day :)

When I woke up Saturday morning my youngest was doing so hot. He was running a fever for the 3rd day in a row. Being a good mother I called his doctor and they wanted to see him. They set an appointment up for him at 9am. There was no way I was going to make it to the race. I was very bummed but I wanted my little guy to feel better!!! When I changed his diaper he was covered in a rash from the fever. Poor little man was a mess!
my baby napping
I took the opportunity of a rare nap for Carson to get an afternoon run in. Since I missed the race in the morning I decided to head out for a hilly run. I was able to 5.5 in 49:30 (9:00/mile pace) This is the second fastest I have run this loop. I will add the Garmin details later. I was even able to test out the new running outfit! It was one of the most comfortable running outfits I have ever worn! I will definitely buying more clothes from them! the best thing about sick children is how cuddly they are! Love my little man!!

The 10k started at 10am. I had pre-registered so we got there at 9:15. I got my number and headed to the bathroom....there was quite a line. I did a mile warm-up at 9:40. I missed the drills that I normally do before a race. I lined up, without headphones, as this race did not allow them. The gun went off and we took off.....
here is how it went......
Mile 1 7:23- I knew within the first quater of mile that it was going to be a tough run. My legs were so tight. Especially my quads!
Mile 2 7:48
Mile 3 8:06
Mile 4 8:16
Mile 5 8:17
Mile 6 7:55 .24 1:44 (7:24 pace)
Total 6.24 49:31 (7:59 pace)
This was my 4th time running this race 2001 (45:24), 2003 (51:44), 2009 (57:07). I was very disappointed in my time as my mommy pr is 45:20. But when I saw that it was the second fastest I have run this course and I actually beat a time from before having my 3 monsters I felt a little better about it.
