Santa Monica Classic 5k!

047

I was stoked to run the Santa Monica Classic on Sunday. I won a free entry from the lovely people at Pom Wonderful!

First of all, I do not suggest running a 5k the day after wine tasting. I went to bed at 11:30pm and woke up at 5am. (Santa Monica is about 45 minutes away from me without traffic.) I was exhausted!

076

Still I managed to beat my last 5k time! I finished in 37:30. Still not my fastest (37:23) but pretty darn close. I ran the first mile in 11 minutes and then proceeded to run/walk. I only walked for 30 seconds at a time though. I'm slowly chipping away at that mental block.

066

The course was really nice and fun to run. I saw parts of Santa Monica that I had never seen. I really enjoyed being outside despite the fog. I did miss seeing the ocean however.

085

I had to take a picture with the Pom people at the expo! Thanks for the entry POM!

(Being sweaty and red is bad but even worse, I spilled my water all over myself. Graceful!)

087

We walked 2.6 miles after the 5k and got bagels. Everything with sun-dried tomato cream cheese for Andy.

088

And a sun-dried tomato bagel with egg, cheese, lettuce, turkey and tomato for me. We each had a half of each. Sharing is caring.

Also Sunday was our 5 year dating anniversary. We didn't celebrate since we're married now and all but I had to mention it! Andy was so supportive of me during the race. And he drove me to the race at 5am on his day off. Gotta love him.

Three 5K's in less than 6 months. I'm pretty darn pleased with myself. I will run my next one in June. I hope to finish in under 36 minutes.

Good for you- and extra props for still hanging in there after your late night and wine! I don't think I could've managed that, haha.

And that bagel?? Totally worth it! And for the record, I'd have probably done a wine tasting the night before too! :D
