Mother's Day 5K

I love to sleep, so my top two choices for a great Mother's Day would be sleeping in or running a race.  With the lovely rain on Saturday Morning baseball was canceled so I got to sleep in, so when Sunday came I got to race!!

My first 5K of the season - time 23:43.  The funny thing is that is my best time and that was the SAME EXACT time I got at my last 5K of 2009.  Interesting!

I hadn't really been doing a lot of running lately and I didn't do my normal race routine days before the race.  In fact, I decided the night before to run.  It was fun.  Jon and the boys came with me and I ran.  It was SUPER cold and windy. I wished I had more layers and a hat.  All in all I was happy with my results.

Looking forward to the Shamrock Duathlon in a few weeks.  Jon and I are doing it together.  I'm not really ready for it, but I'll go give it my best try.

A few pics from the race:  Running and then the finish with my boys.
