Another Saturday, Another 5K

So I bounced back into racing by doing back-to-back 5Ks two weekends in a row. This weekend was the Hollyfest 5K, which started about half a mile from my house. And that was a good thing, because I took my first post-baby muscle conditioning class at the gym Friday, which admittedly wasn't my best ever idea. Considering I could hardly walk down the stairs in my own house from the pain in my quads Saturday morning, I didn't have the motivation to go very far! My sister was in town though and ready to run so we headed down the street bright and early to register. Around mile marker one Becky started asking if my legs felt better yet, to which I replied, Hell No! The burning! But we made it through the hills and eventually to the finish and I came in only about a minute slower than my previous race. Not too bad when you factor in the intense firey pain in my legs for the entire course!

My official cheering squad Jay and Luke came out again. Luke was all dressed up in his Halloween gear as you can see below. It was a great day, butI've already decided I'll be taking this weekend off!

And one more pic of my little pumpkin!
