Hey, hey!

I ran a 5K road race with the lovely ladies of KFIT this morning and, surprisingly, I pulled off a PR! Woohoo! It felt pretty awesome, especially 9 days before the marathon. Yayyyyyy!


We signed up for the Marshfield St. Patrick’s Day 5K, but because of the ridiculous amount of snow back in March, it was postponed until today. And what a day for a race. The weather was absolutely gorgeous! Finally!

The course was (mostly) flat, and I was feeling pretty good, so I set out at a comfortable, yet challenging, pace. I didn’t know my exact pace until 5:00 minutes into the race when my RunKeeper app told me it was 7:15. Whoa. I knew this pace was much too fast to sustain, so I slowed down for mile 2.

The second mile of the race totally flew by– thanks to my kick-butt Boston Marathon playlist that I made last night. (Related: The cell service in Marshfield isn’t great, so if you run this race, be sure to download some music on your phone because Pandora and similar apps don’t work very well.) Before I knew it, I was running the final mile of the race, so I pushed as hard as I could. Just as I wanted to give up, I saw the finish line in the distance and SPRINTED to the end. As soon as I crossed the finish line, I knew it was a PR. Official time: 23:40 (7:37). Yeehaw!

After the race, the whole KFIT crew celebrated by enjoying some adult beverages outside in the sunshine. It was an awesome afternoon!

And, tonight, I made some Donut Cookies, which Monica brought me when she visited last week. They tasted phenomenal, but I really wish we had a donut pan because they would have tasted that much better. So much donut love. YUMMMM!
