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.
