White Rose 5 Miler 2015
I ran a 5 mile race this past Saturday! I haven’t officially raced since last November, so it was nice to get back to it. Since I am following a Hal Higdon marathon plan, I also had the big 20 miler planned for the same day. The plan for my friend Bethany and I was to race the 5 miler first, then go run 15 together. Colby also raced, but ran his 15 before the race!
Bethany and I headed to the park to finish our long run but it got tough. Humid weather and we got dehydrated. We left the park with about 16 miles. When I got home I drank some Gatorade and got on my treadmill to get to 18 miles for the day. I did 19 miles a few weeks ago so I’m feeling okay about it.
Since the race was sponsored by a local restaurant, we decided we all deserved a nice meal. The picture above is me with Bethany’s daughter 🙂 I ate a huge crab/cheese covered soft pretzel appetizer all by myself that night!
