Pre-race breakfast was a banana smeared with peanut butter. I was going to do peanut toast, but I read on the No Meat Athlete that bread and diary take more energy to digest than fruits, so I went with that. I was going to do a smoothie, but it was just a 5k, so I didn't need that many calories.
So we got there early, and I got my race number and grabbed a few pictures with my precious daughter (doesn't like looking at the camera currently).
After some chatting, I got in line and was off. Here Hope is watching mommy run by.
Here I am roudning the last corner before the finish (I am in the pink sleeves and black vest).
And here I am finishing strong. It was a good race. I had a pregnancy PR of 28:12 and it was a very hilly race. I felt good.
After the race, we didn't stick around for the awards. It was cold and Adam needed to get going and I had a tennis match that afternoon, so I had to promise to consume as many calories as I could between the race and my tennis match (which I did win, but it took 2.5 hours, oops).
