Iron Girl 5K Recap

This was one of my favorite races last year, and I was pumped to run it again...but then I got preggers.  So, I was intending on jogging the course with my little sister Liza, but then she had her appendix removed the day before.  Looks like I'm on my own on this one!

I recruited Travis to go with me, but he was not in the best mood to wake up at 7am on a Sunday.  Oh great.  We got to Greenlake and I jumped out the car and headed for the packet pick-up.  I decided that Liza deserved her shirt and bib number too, and picked up both of ours.  AND, I actually had my choice of shirt sizes this year!
Goober's 7th race

Since I thought Travis was going to meet me at the start to take my bag, I was frustrated to find out that he parked a mile away and did not want to meet me.  Grrrrrrrr.  Luckily this year they had a bag check.  So, in my hurry to check my bag and get my race bib on, I totally forgot to put Gus on my wrist.  I felt so naked!  Poor Gus.  This was a first. :(

Because of my ligament issue, I intended on walking the course.  HAHAHAHAHA!  Riiiiight, Zoe.  As soon as the Aflac Duck signaled the start, I was jogging along.  Sure, it wasn't the greatest feeling, but I was determined not to walk the entire way.  My competitive side came out.  But, I was taking it very easy and walked when I felt like I needed to.  All in all, I did a decent job jogging and walking.  It was really fun seeing all the Mother/Daughter teams running together, some in matching gear.  A part of me was thinking "Hey! I'm actually running with my daughter too!" :)

Trav actually met me at the finish and saw my "kick" at the end.  He asked "What was that??" because he thought I was walking.  "I couldn't WALK to the finish line." Duh.

While waiting to pick up my bag from gear check, I met Emily from Travel With Emily!  It was so cool to meet another local blogger/runner.  Big shout out to Miss Emily!  Woot! :)
