These 2 were the stars of the day! Ruling the kids run and loving the Olympic Stadium atmosphere!!! This was P's first race, and she loved it.
Note to Nike Running people...sometimes when I want to look girly but fast for race day I shop in the tennis section instead of the running section. Loving this Sharipova tennis dress...I wish there were similar options for runners, with running details included (pockets, etc.).
I was hoping (really hoping) for a PR in the half. That didn't happen. Not even close. But the run was good and fun and parts of it were kinda fast.
Finish line treats...
Who wants fruit when you can have poffertjes??
P and I both wanted post race photos with our medals...she also has on wrist guards...from her skateboarding session. Love that girl.
I'm trying hard not to be mental about the fact (is it a fact??) that I may have peaked at this distance 2 years ago. Tempted to blame yesterday's wind, because that is easier to accept than my mature age. It was windy...but not sure wind can be blamed for a 5 minute time loss...it wasn't that windy. OK, enough running obsessing. For now. Thanks for listening.
