a family 5k

25 Apr

Jersey was perfect..I wish I could have stayed longer! Danny and I actually left our costumes at home in VA Beach, and I opted for a more traditional outfit…one including my new Nike Tempo shorts so i could race in a local 5k with my brother!

The race wasn’t my best. I originally set out to beat my PR of 25:23…but one mile in my stomach was in some SERIOUS pain. I thought I could hold out my 7:50ishh pace but the only way it would’ve happened was if I was running straight towards a porta potty… I finished the race in 25:33 but was SUPER excited for my brother! It was his first ever race and he finished in 24:13. (With no training what-so-ever…damn kids.)


Despite my failed attempt at a PR, I managed to snag third place in my age group for females, and my bro placed third in his as well. ๐Ÿ˜€

It was so fun to run with my brother, even if he was about a minute ahead the whole time. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The race was to benefit research for SIDS, and after explaining the saddness to my brother he said..”Oh, I thought we were running for STDS.”

Post race my mom made us wraps filled with smoked turkey, cucumber, and cream cheese. (Yes..I’m having a hard time quitting dairy, hence my pain. I’m ridiculous.)

with pretzels&pinapple!

Post 5k we took this little girl for a walk..


then headed out to Haddonfield..where I was lucky enough to score a running related gift from my parents! More on that soon. ๐Ÿ˜€

Edit: My official results!

    Congratulations on getting 3rd place! I’ve never been able to run at a 7:50 pace for one mile, so I can’t even imagine that pace for three miles!

    haha that sounds entirely like my younger brother, we go for runs together and he dominates when he doesn’t even run barely!

    I am looking for new running shorts now for summer:)I am looking at new Nike ones or lululemon!

    Yay congrats on medals for both! So funny because I ran a race this weekend with my fam too and got a 3rd place medal in my AG! I ran most of it with my bro, but he didn’t place ๐Ÿ˜ฆ So fun to share it with your fam, isn’t it??

    The outfit you are wearing in that last picture is too cute!! Nice job on the race, I think that time is speedy fast! Don’t you hate how people who don’t train can just bust it out?? What is that!

      Well THANKS! RIGHT, totally unfair…he has to run the mile in gym class today and is excited because now it will seem “SO EASY”! I’ll have to find out how fast he went. ๐Ÿ™‚
