After going to bed with a fever on Friday night I was slightly disappointed when I woke up Saturday with another fever (I am 100% sure I broke the first fever at some point Friday night since I went to bed with chills and woke up 1.5 hours later covered in sweat). I am super stubborn and didn't want to miss out on running this race, and I even promised Ryan I would walk the course.
Of course walking was not an option. I tried to race conservatively and completed the 5k in 26:39 minutes. The course had a slow uphill in the beginning and ended with a fast downhill (which was much appreciated) during the last 0.5 mile.
Mason was a super champ and behaved the entire time while riding around in the BOB stroller.
I didn't take any pictures before, during, or after the race. I was trying hard to just hold it together until we got home. I spent the rest of the weekend in bed or thinking about going back to bed.
Fortunately I am feeling a lot better today. I'm already looking at the Run for Your Life Grand Prix Series for my next race with Mason.
