Oops I did it again!

Thing 1 asked me last night at 11pm...after we had spent the day at Darien Lake Amusement Park if I could drive him to practise in the morning. And, btw, practise is a 10K race with an entry fee and we have to be there at 8am to register & warm up with the team.  Oh yeah sure, no problem, I'd love to do that.  But since he is pretty darn cute and willing to put up with the stipulation: "Well, if it's a race & I have to drive you there & pay your entry fee, I guess you'll have to suck up the public spectacle of having your Mum run too".  He was cool with it (but I would have done it even if he wasn't ;))

So here is my pleasant surprise:  I PR'd & rocked out mile 5 at an 8:41 pace!!!!  I found my groove heading into the 4th mile and it seemed like my feet were working on there own & I was out there PASSING people!

Finishing time: 58:02.....woo hoo!!!!!!
