The sun was shining…and Minnesota temps were in the 40’s…
Perfect day for the 10k Running Opener!!
Pre-race fuel: Coffee, 1/2 cup quick oats (with cinnamon and agave nectar) and some blackberries
The race didn’t start until 9:00 but because my cousin Meghan and I were pacing, we had to get there around 8:00.
We got our shirts, met some of the other Pacers, and warmed up.
Taryn and I paced the 9:11 group. It was great! She was a great pacer and we just chatted the whole time. She just had a baby 4 weeks ago! Impressive, right?
Our goal time was 57:00 and we finished about 25 seconds fast. Better under than over!
After the race, Meghan and I ran another lap around the lake. In total, we put in about 9.30 miles.
Not a bad way to start our Saturday!
My pacing shirt:
and makeshift pacing chart
On the way back to the car we snagged some banana pieces.
I was pretty hungry by the time I got home. After Meghan dropped me off I had to run to the grocery store to grab some essentials (eggs, spinach, etc.).
As I cooked my omelet I had a Yoplait Greek Yogurt.
Breakfast is served!
In the mix
- 1/2 cup Southwestern style Egg Beaters + 1 egg white
- 1/4 cup black beans
- Peppers and onions
- 2 pieces light toast
And some grapes
I’m off to take pictures for Anna and Joe! Have a great afternoon!
