For my 30th bday, I had an awesome 80's party. For my 32nd bday, I got my first tattoo. So for my 34th bday, that is coming up, I wanted to do something memorable as well. When I saw the Hot Hatch Chile Run was not far from my house, I wanted to do it. And also they served a breakfast loaded with green chiles afterwards. :)
Before the race, in front of the Hatch Chile Fest sign.
Craig and the kids were waiting at the Finish Line and took this pic.
Finished!!! I didn't even notice they had made signs and were holding them up for me. So thoughtful!!!
I came in 14th place out of 35 for my age group. I had a personal record (PR) of 34:43. It was hot, the hills were tough, and I had to force myself to finish. I did have to walk a few times, but I didn't care. I needed to catch my breath! Ha!!!
I only told a few friends and family about this and know they were cheering me on and praying I would get through this. My awesome trainer and friend ran with me and was so encouraging the whole way. I really appreciated it!!!
A 5K is now checked off my bucket list. Next up: Couch Potato to 10K
