Happy New Years!!!
My New Years Eve was a bust. I fell asleep at 11:30. hahaha. yeah.
But I had an awesome New Years Day!
A few weeks ago, I found a coupon code for Commitment Day 5K in Long Beach. I wasn't sure if I had plans or if Anthony would want to join me but for $10 I couldn't resist.
I told him beforehand that we could jog or walk if he wanted to. He's not a runner at all so I didn't want him to feel pressured so I told him that I would follow his lead. The race started at 8am and it was COLD!!
We started the race pretty conservatively. I fought all of my instincts to take off fast and just enjoyed the run. I tried to talk to Anthony and make sure he was ok.
He was fine. And was doing great. He kept speeding up.
I love this blurry picture. This was in the last 1/2 mile. He said he was tired but I felt like we were running pretty fast.
We finished at 31:40 (!!!) at about a pace of 10 min/ mile. I'm so proud of him. I don't think he thought he could run the whole thing. but he did. and it was fast :)
After we crossed the finish line, he sat and rested while I went over to get some water and snacks.
This was my favorite race of all times. It was so much fun and I was so excited that Anthony was running it with me. I hope he's addicted because I can't wait to run another race together.
