Freeze Your Thorns Off 5k Race Report

After my poor result time with Toni's 3.5 Birthday Run this weekend I wanted to KICK BUTT runnign for Adams's Freeze Your Throns Off 5K.  My race plan this time was different... this time I
  • Ran a flatter course
  • Ran on the weekend
  • Ran while my hubby and baby where waiting for me on the redwood track
  • Ran enjoying the scenery without stopping to take pictures
  • Ran to Black Keys new album (If you haven't heard Lonely Boy Yet, you gotta you tube it!)
  • Ran  hard and fast -- with all my might since baby was waiting for me (having a 15 month old is pretty motivating to get done faster)
The result.... wait for it..... 3.13 miles in 30:37 sec... snappity snap snap. For you guys keeping score at home that is average pace of 9:47 (I am actually getting faster after having a child). 

Thanks Adam for hosting a great virtual run, now how do I get those cool arm warmers ? :)
