Freeze Yer Bunz 5k Race Recap!

I almost didn't run this race because the 2 days before race I had a nasty stomach bug and was still not feeling 100% on race morning. {For the record the bug was not a baby, that fact was also confirmed the morning of the race, The odds were REALLY stacked against me for this one!} I still needed to get my miles in for my 32 mile goal though and since I am starting to get sick of the treadmill, I knew that an outdoor run was exactly what I needed!

The following picture is stolen from Facebook :)... I don't typically run like such a goober, I was raising my arms above my head for the picture and my timing wasn't too great:)
Here I am coming to the finish line!!

Check out my time!! 29:18!! My time for the Turkey Trot was 33:14 so that means I shaved about 4 minutes off of my time! Plus, this course had some crazy hills! I am so proud of how far I have come!
I placed 3rd for the females!! Wahooo! I got a bronze medal!

I am so glad that I ran this race! I just signed up for my first half marathon in August and this race really has me pumped up to start training for it!

Anyone want to run the half marathon with me? Its the Lululemon SeaWheeze Half in Vancouver, B.C.! August 10-11th!
