Yesterday morning, Dan, Nola, and I headed out to our ‘Paws in the Park’ 5k. This was our first doggy dash, and I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t crazy excited for it. Dan and I had planned to run the race together, but once we arrived and I sized up the competition, I encouraged him to go ahead without me and to finish as quickly as possible.
Dan and Nola ended up placing 5th overall, insert proud fiancé and mom line here. I was feeling great until mile 2.5, where I experienced a terrible side stitch. I managed to finish in 26 minutes and was happy with my time. I was even happier with the post race treats. Nola and I shared 2 Peanut Butter Clif Bars and would both offer rave reviews.
All in all, we had a fantastic time and I would definitely recommend a fun run with dogs. Although I shouldn’t admit it, my quads are especially sore today. Kudos to all you ladies training for and running your 1/2 marathons. I am definitely inspired to get into that kind of shape again.
