I raced my first 5K. My Mom and my daughter, Mia, did the race with me. It was around Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis. What a gorgeous day for a race. Temperatures were low 70's. I was torn between getting my best time and walking with my Mom. My daughter ran the race with 30:42 time. I walked the first 2+ miles with my mom but then asked if it was okay if I went ahead. My heart rate was only 120 while I walked with her. I wanted a work out. So I ran ahead for a few tenths, then walked fast keeping my heart rate about 150. Then ran the last bit to get ahead of the person in front of me. My time was 49:49. I wanted to be under 1 hour. My next goal is to break 45:00. Guess I better sign up for another 5K if I am going to do that!
It was a very enjoyable experience all around. My oldest daughter, Hannah, took my youngest, Erica, to a park on the route. As we passed the park they, too, joined us. So the whole family (minus Al) did the 5k yesterday.
For dinner I had a Turkey burger, two onion rings, and a lime malt and Snuffy's malt shop near my mom's house. I probably should have skipped the malt but it was so very good. Erica drank a third of it!
Today is my brother's birthday. We're going to BBQ this afternoon. Mom bought a pumpkin pie for desert, but I will pass on that.
This morning, I made pancakes for the family. I chose to eat a healthy cereal with almond milk. I really like cereal with almond milk. can't seem to get enough. Plus, I tried Kashi's Autumn Wheat. Now I don't have to eat Mini wheats which has high fructose corn syrup.
