Hale Freezes Over 10k

What a crazy night.

I was woken up from a dead sleep but Dusty barking her head off at 2:30 am. Yeah, I wasn't too happy. About an hour later Annabelle woke up all fussy. Then some one's car alarm went off and honked for about 5 minutes before they shut it off. Then 30 minutes later it went off again. Then Dusty decided she wanted to bark again....and then Jason and I couldn't get back to sleep cause the heater was on and our room was too hot.

I finally fell asleep after about an hour and then woke up to the alarm at 6:30.

Sounds like fun, huh?

We got to the race in time for me to do a mile warm up and head to the start.

It was a good race. I felt really good the first half. I did the first 3 miles in 29 min and the once I hit the hill at the last leg of the race, urgh...that was TOUGH! I ended up running the 10k in 1.03.49! Almost under an hour. I'm thinking next month's 10k will be under. It's a flat course, unlike this one.

I ended up being 5th in my age group and 15th place over all in the women's category! :)

I feel good. I'm a little tired and I have a bit of a headache, but nothing to complain about. It was totally worth it. It's amazing how different I look from last year's race. I've come a looooong way. :)
I did a mile cool down at the playgound while the kids were playing.
Today was a good day!
