We made t-shirts for our team with the above logo on the back. On the front we put everyone's nicknames. The nickname for my shirt was "Cookie Queen" because I like to bake cookies and bring them into the hubs's office. Everyone in his office loves snow days, because I almost always come in with a treat!
This was the hubs's first race ever, and my third weekend in a row of running in a race. I was feeling somewhat confident about my abilities and he was hoping to finish in under 30 minutes.
I had two goals for this race:
1. Get a personal best time
2. Beat the hubs
Seriously, the hubs and I are both pretty competitive people. I wanted to beat him so badly! I have been running for the past year and a half and have been working really hard to become a better runner. He got peer pressured into running this race and had been "training" for a total of three weeks. I told him if he ran past me I would trip him. (Wife of the year right here!)
After the race, I enjoyed this amazing cheeseburger guilt free. This is why I run. So I can enjoy food and not feel totally guilty. Just kidding! Well, sort of. It's one of the many reasons why I run, though!
It was so fun to run with the hubs! I'm looking forward to the Color Run that we are doing in Boston and (hopefully!) in New York. I think he's also going to join me on a few other races this summer. Yay!
