Mac N Cheese 5k & Labor(less) Day Weekend
Happy Labor (hopefully labor less) Day weekend! My Saturday was a relaxing one. Started off with Body Pump and yard work and finished up with ice cream with my sister and baby shower invitation shopping. Which reminds me… I forgot to tell you guys about our (Kristin and I’s) evening of baseball and froyo last weekend…
Look at that sky! Rich (Kris’s BF) had a game, so I picked up froyo on the way there for us to enjoy. Little did we know we’d also have a beautiful sky as a back drop 🙂
Sunday was the highlight for me. I participated in the Mac N Cheese 5k. It was awkwardly timed at 10:30AM. What I dislike about that time: it’s FL and it’s freakin HOT and sunny and 10:30. What I liked: I got to sleep in. It’s not like I was going for a PR (obviously) so who cares if it was super hot? I just wanted to run a fun race. I had a nice tall glass of watermelon Nuun before I left to keep my electrolytes up and be ready for the heat.
I did my obligatory pre-race fierce photo, which I normally keep for marathons and halfs, but special occasions like this get one, too. I wore both my fitbit (to check my heart rate) and Garmin (for distance) but never looked at my pace- this was for fun after all.
This was my first race preggers and everyone was saying Good Job Mama! and Way to go! Not gonna lie, I liked the attention 😉 Half of the course was shaded, so that was nice.
I ended up finishing in the top 25 women overall out of about 300. Not too shabby. We got a small (TOO SMALL) bowl of mac n cheese at the end and both baby and mom were happy!
Of course I had some Nuun waiting in a cooler in the car for the drive home. Orange was the perfect flavor for the Florida afternoon. Look at this medal… Definitely one of the coolest/biggest ones I have!
I don’t have much going on on Monday. Luckily, I have the day off from work. Maybe I’ll hit up some Labor Day sales to save some money (clothes and fall scented candles!), lay out and tan my pasty skin, replace Todd’s water bottle that I broke (sorry Love), oh, and vacuum. Good times.
