Firecracker 5 mile race


The facts...

100 degree weather

Birthed a baby 40 days ago

Still engorged from my nursling

Just resumed exercise 18 days ago

I crossed the finish line.

I think that is all I have to say about this race.

It was the worst idea I ever had, almost made me give up running. Glad I did not die. Glad my sweet baby slept the whole time. Glad my family did not die of heat stroke while waiting for me. I went home fed my baby and slept. Woke up to feed him again and then slept some more. IF I ever have another baby... (not likely I am old) I will not run this soon after. IT.WAS.BRUTAL.
