Helloooo! I took a little #IndependenceDayVacay15 away from the blog. Yes, that was the hastag I used for this weekend, although I only posted a whopping 4 pictures over the weekend. Somehow beach bumming and getting sunburned took precedence over posting pictures. Who would have guessed.
So one exciting thing I did over the weekend was my Independence Day 8k! I was so excited about this race. Well I'm still pretty excited, it's just over now. I got my bib and my picture so that's another one for the [scrap]books!
I knew I wasn't going to do amazing with this race. The humidity had been giving me some trouble. So I did my best and pushed through. My goal was to finish in 60 minutes. Guess what?! I beat my goal. I finished in 57:11. Although I wish I would have pushed a little harder, I'm very happy with my time.
Cute faces right?!
But really, I'm proud of myself but I'm very proud of my mom. That's her with me in the picture and I think she could have done better than me, but she wasn't going to leave me. I'm so happy that we have gotten into running together.
As always I'm looking for my next race to run. I'm keeping my eye out for the Great Pumpkin Run 5k on Halloween and the Central VA Turkey Trot 5k on Thanksgiving to open up. I'm excited about both of them!
