King Tiger 5k

65 days after having Mason I ran my first 5k.  It was the King Tiger 5k, put on by Run for Your Life.  

My cheering squad stayed home sleeping (Mason had his first 5 hour sleep stretch) so I headed to the race on my own bright and early.

It was a nice, chilly morning in Charlotte and didn't warm up until after I finished the race.  The course had some challenging hills, and unfortunately I didn't finish as fast as I would've liked.

I'm such a breastfeeding mom ... love how you can see that I was leaking in the photo.  How embarrassing!

This was the first race I ran in my new age group, 30-34 years old.  I am not pleased to announce that women get faster as they age.  Whereas I felt pretty confident in the 25-29 age group, I am in way over my head with these older speedy women.  3 out of the 5 top women overall came from the 30-34 age group.  I placed 8th out of 57 in my new age group, with a chip time of 25:03 minutes.

I had a lot of fun racing and am looking forward to running a few more 5k's this summer and fall.
