This past Sunday was the Making Tracks for the Zoo 5K. Both my friends Becki and Kris were going to be running it too! I couldn't wait to get back out there for a "fun" 5K. I told Beck that she was going to be my pacing coach, and our goal was to run 9 minute miles!
Me, Craig and Logan got out to the zoo around 7:15am. It was a gorgeous morning, and I knew that the heat would start rising soon. It was suppose to be around 92ish that day. Becki had picked up my race packet the day before, so I didn't have to worry about that. We made it to the starting area to wait for Beck and Kris.
They both got there around 7:40, and we got to take some pics with the kids. Ryan, Becki's husband had came with Libby, and Kris was going to be pushing Weston in the jogging stroller.
It was great motivation, and even greater motivation when a lady came up to us and told us that we could do this...she was pregnant, and we couldn't let a pregnant woman beat us:)
So, at the 3 mile marker, we started sprinting to the finish line! I saw Logan and Craig and smiled and waved!! My little cheerers!
I finished the 5K in 27 minutes 46 seconds, with at pace of 8:57. What a great run! I was sooo proud of myself, and glad that Beck was there to push me to the finish!
Kris came by a few minutes later, pushing Weston, and doing an awesome job!
