5k Review

So today I ran my 5th 5k in a row! Well by that I mean 5 weekends in a row. I have to say I feel like I’m getting better and better! I am really loving this running thing. Helps clean the mind.

So today’s run was called Dragon’s Breath  5k. This race was pretty small about 200 people but it was a good one. I ran through a bunch of different neighborhoods which was nice seeing a part of Springfield I’ve never seen before. I will tell you the best part of this race was I didn’t just get a t-shirt! There was a whole bunch of gifts!!! I got an amazing t-shirt my hubs is totally jealous of and a bondi band.

For people that don’t know what they are. They are basically a head band but they work! They don’t slip off or anything, at least on my head they don’t. Check out their website. www.bondiband.com Also if you order some they are having a July special, buy 3 get 1 free.

So the big news I waited until now to tell you guys is…. I BEAT MY PERSONAL RECORD! I really wanted to beat it this race and today could not have been more perfect. Race started at 7:30 and it was nice and cloudy only about 75 degrees and the course was great! I beat it my 2 minutes and I couldn’t be more excited!
Hope ya’ll have a great rest of the weekend!! 

Don’t make fun of the picture I was clearly not 100% awake J

Here are some fun pictures so far from the trip! More to come! 

Starbucks drink was only 120 calories!! I was sooo excited! I am pretty much in love with that place and for them to have a low calorie drink was amazing! Yes, that was my one special treat so far!
