On Saturday I ran the Mermaid Series 5K, San Diego and I had a blast! It was my first Mermaid Series race and first official (non-virtual) race of my 13 races in 2013. The race course was in Mission Bay and we ran along the gorgeous coast of Fiesta Island. It was so nice to see a large number of women out running together and enjoying the beautiful scenery.
I represented my Sweat Pink Sisters with my running attire (my new Sweat Pink tank and Nike LunarGlide running shoes) and I was even Sparkling by sporting my favorite sparkly headband from Sparkly Soul.
I was so motivated to run this race and set a PR.... And I did! I ran it in 37:50 (12:12 pace) which is my fastest 5K race, to date! I'm so excited that this was the way I started my 2013 race schedule!
Today's Monday Motivation is just to get out and go! It doesn't matter how slow you are... You're faster than everyone sitting on the couch! I used to be embarrassed about how slow my pace was, but now I'm just so happy that I have the motivation to start the race. :D
Did you run a race this weekend? Did you just get up and go? Maybe you're still training for your first race?! Leave me some love and let me know... I'd love to hear about it!
