I signed up for this race because of the title and the low cost. First race postpartum and first race in Kansas. It started and ended at a college and we were able to stay inside before and after the race, which was on point because it was very chill outside. I was able to park next to the start/finish, so I waited in my car for the start minutes before the race started.

Race was on a parkway trail, out and back. Figures I would be in the 1:40 range with this race and my fitness level. 7:40 pace seemed challenging but doable, so I tried to hang on as long as I could. I held until about mile 7 and then I was around 8 mm.

Everytime I saw a "chocolate Rush" sign with an arrow, I ran faster to the chocolate waiting for me. At the turn around, I was the fourth lady. By mile 8 I caught up with number three and left her behind. The last mile and a half as kept falling behind. Last push was up a big hill into the wind. I was proud of my efforts.

Finish line had THE spread of amazing goodies. I indulged and made my way home. David gave me the morning off from the kiddos.

I started at 9:30 and my run was very warm. Discovered all of the bottles on my running belt are shot and leak everywhere, so I didn't carry fuel.

Did a 7 mile loops and came back home for water. Did a 9 mile loop and stopped at a drinking fountain with 4 miles to go.

I actually didn't back track on my run any, so I was proud of that.

8:39 ap. Felt like crap

It felt better as I ran. After 20 miles on Sat my legs were dead. But something happened and they picked up speed. I'm nowhere near what I was but I have felt I have come so far since having a baby 4 months ago.
