As promised, I’m going to be doing some shorter races over the next year as Alan and I plan our wedding. Today was the first one and we chose the Freedom Run at the Ranch (Ladera Ranch) 10K. It was a small race, especially for the 10K field, and we had a blast. We got there around 6:20am, wandered our way through the really cute neighborhood and found the start/finish and registration table. A quick walk back to the car and back to the race put us there just in time. I had been warned that it was two loops and that there was a long hill so we took it easy. I loved that most of the race was shaded and that the 10K started early (7am) as it turned out to be a warm day. The second loop I pushed Alan a little bit up the hill because I wanted to pass some women and then we really picked up the pace for the last 0.8 to pass more people and finish in 52:xx. We crossed the finish line holding hands; what more could a girl want?!
Follow me on InstagramAfter using the Bob every day for his first few months of life, I stopped taking him out in it as often; any time we go somewhere, he is in his car seat over an hour and I don’t want him spending more time in it while I run or walk. I have been logging most of my miles on the treadmill while he naps. Today we did not run any errands (yay!), so I got outside for a run with my cute running partner. I logged 3.5 easy treadmill miles while he napped and then ran 2 stroller miles when he woke. I averaged 8:37 per mile pushing the stroller — faster than I ran on the treadmill! I’m hoping for more solid stroller runs before it heats up. #mommy #mommyandme #fitmom #fitmommy #stroller #run #running #postpartum #postpartumfitness #motherrunner #runnersofinstagram #runnergirl #strollerrunning #strollerrunning #getoutdoors #getoutside
