Workout Wednesday: nine70 5K

Happy Wednesday!

Well, last weekend, I competed in my first pregnant race, the nine70 5k! Of course, I’m not too big yet and people would have likely thought I was just a little chunky (rather than preggo) if it weren’t for my spiffy “Running for Two” top my sista gave me. Thanks, Kate!

It was a beautiful Saturday morning here in Fort Collins – a perfect running day! Aside from a lovely morning, the race didn’t start until 9am (got to sleep in!) and it was also a fundraiser. Winning on all levels. A big part of the day was bringing your old running kicks to donate to be sent to people who need shoes. They had a ton of sneakers!

Unfortunately, they didn’t set up mile markers so I have no idea what my splits were (which makes me think I need to add a Garmin running watch to my Christmas list). Overall though, I ran the 5k in 29:45 mins! That’s a good 5-6 minutes slower than my typical 5k pace (PR is 23:41, my average is 24-25 mins) but I was still proud to complete the race in under 30 minutes. I’m sure as I get bigger, I’ll get slower. :)

After Saturday, I’m pumped to be feeling so good while running again! I’m hoping to get in a few more races this fall…I’ll be sure to keep you posted.

All the donated shoes!

How about you? Are you signed up for any fall races?
