The Race that Didn't Happen for me.....

Saturday, I was going to run a 10k. The Fly With Eagles 10k. It is a tough course! Last year I was the overall female. I wanted to see what kind of shape I am in compared to last year. I wanted to see if I could run faster on this course. I did everything that I normally do on Friday even laid out my new outfit to run in. New outfit from 26.2 apparel

modeling the new outfit

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!

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!!


  1. So sorry you missed the race, and that your son was so sick!
    Glad your afternoon run was a success, and hopefully your son is all recovered?

  2. Aww, poor little man! There will always be another race =) Your such a good mom!
