Our Father’s Day weekend started bright and early Saturday morning. Actually, now that I think of it, I’m pretty sure we were up before the sun. Saturday morning we ran the Fit Foodie 5K in Fairfax, VA, which was a blast!
After getting ready, waking Magnolia, and getting her ready, we headed over to Virginia for the 7:30AM race start. Having run the race last year, I was really happy to see the changes they had made to the race route and finishers village set up. The race was so organized this year!
Neal and I went into the race without a plan. I ran the first mile straight (12:33) and then walked up hills during mile 2 (12:59) and mile 3 (13:50). Mile 3’s time was off by a few minutes because we stopped to give a tired dog a bottle of water and to make sure he was ok. We were probably with the owners for about 5 minutes.
Sunday morning we let daddy sleep in while we played dress up. Around 10AM we headed over to the Black Hills Regional Park for a long walk as a family and then hung out at home for the rest of the day. We watched baseball, played a lot, and made a delicious dinner for Neal. It was the perfect way to close out the weekend!
