Ogden 5K

Last Saturday was the big 5K. My first 'race' since having Hannah. When I have ran in the past I would get sooo nervous before it started. Feeling sick to my stomach, jittery, etc. This time I did not feel that way at all. (Probably because I had "my crutch"-the running stroller and because it was the shortest race I have done- 3 miles instead of 13.)

The race started at 7:00 in the morning. Cam kept telling me to just leave Hannah home and he would bring her. I refused because as I said early she was "my crutch" my excuse for going slow. I wasn't planning on waking her up I was just going to grab her in her pj's and bring her along. She woke up at 6:15 that morning anyway so it made the decision to bring her even easier!

There were so many people at the start of the race. Mike, Carrie, Connor, and Dallin found me at the start about 1 minute before it started and we were off!

The weather was beautiful and my littlest running partner feel asleep about two miles into the race. She was so cute and such a trooper.

I won't post my time here because I don't want all of you to be jealous :). But the race did exactly what I wanted it to do. It was very fun and very motivating. Here are a few pics from our adventure.

Road races are fun! It is harder to run with a stroller. Way to go!
