Run for Women

The Run for Women was Hannah's longest run she has done to date.  The morning was absolutely beautiful and we were happy to not freeze before the race began.  We got to wear our pink and black tutus made by Michele at krazykidlets and we fit right in with the Run for Women's pink theme!  Hannah was so anxious to start and checked my watch a thousand times to see how much longer till the race began.  We also really loved how people decorated the port a potties with fabulous pink these...they were fit for a queen!  Who knew they could be so luxurious :)

We were off at 8:45am.  In the first mile we ran into our friend Adele George and chatted for a little while.  We were by Weschester Lagoon by mile 2.  I found I had to do a lot more turning around to see Hannah, which was not fun for my knee.  Hannah was a little more tired than usual and was surprised when I told her we were only at the 5k point.  About 4 1/2 miles, we were both really pushing it for the finish. 

We got sooooo close to our goal of being under 50 minutes.  We finished our first 5 mile race in 50:10!!!
Hannah earned 5th place for her age group.  Only one 7 year old was ahead of her, and the rest were 10 year olds. 

Next up...Mayors Marathon 5.6 mile run on Saturday!
