Clock time/Garmin Time: 28:36 A new PR and another wall broken down. Could not have been more proud at that moment but after stopping so abruptly I felt nothing but ill. After inhaling gatorade and canned water (what a novel idea), I felt a lot better. We decided to stick around for the awards ceremony to see how our times compared to our age group’s. Although Michelle and I both got whooped, Kayla and her cousin both won in their ages which was a big HOORAH. And I won a 25 dollar gas gift card. That was better than any trophy.

This race was a huge confidence boost for me after having a bit of a crappy run this week and having some shin and knee pain. I can’t thank Michelle enough for being there and for paying for my entry. Such a blessing! It was a great way to celebrate my birthday and setting a new PR was just the icing on my birthday cake. Right before we left Michelle gave me part 2 of my birthday present. I think she knows me too well.

Ever got a PR after a bad week of training? How do you celebrate your birthdays? Would you ever run a race as a way of celebrating? What is a cool birthday present you have received?
