Mason's first 5k

9 times out of 10 our pre-race meal will always be a cheeseburger.  It hasn't failed us yet so why change what works?  Ryan had signed up for the Plaza Midwood (our neighborhood) 5k on Saturday morning so we ventured out to Kickstand for some burgers on Friday night.  We were literally there 15-20 minutes tops because someone turned into a cranky pants (Mason, not Ryan) and started crying as soon as we got our food.

What makes a “gourmet” burger?
What doesn’t?
We serve certified humane-raised beef from vegetarian fed cattle 100% free of words like steroids, hormones and antibiotics.

I went with the create your own burger ... beef patty, American cheese, dill pickle slices, lettuce, and onion on a whole wheat bun.  I topped it with mayo, ketchup, and mustard.  My side was their delicious sweet tater tots.  Like always the staff was super helpful at Kickstand and understood our need to leave in a hurry cause of the crying monster baby.

Saturday morning Mason and I walked with Ryan to the start of the 5k.  I had no intention of running this race, especially with a jogging stroller, since Mason and I hadn't covered 3 miles yet.  I couldn't help myself, though, and jumped in line, way in the back, and started the race along with the other jogging strollers.  I didn't think we would finish the entire race but we were able to run the 5k in right around 30 minutes.  We had to stop to walk a few times, which I think caused Mason to wake up towards the end, but other than that he was a perfect sleeping baby the entire time.
