Columbus Day Runabout
Every year on the Kwaj, the Running Club hosts a half marathon on the Columbus Day holiday and D and I have done it (well, half of it) almost every year we lived here. This year it was just me, no husband, no babies in jogging strollers, and I wasn't even sure I could run the whole thing since it's only been 10 weeks since my surgery.
But I finished! I ran the whole race and it felt great!
Feeling proud of myself! My total time for the run was 1:06:03
Just a little tired after the race- the longest I'd run since my surgery was three miles and even before that, I hadn't been able to run much for the last year. I met my goal of running the whole thing and even managed to keep a steady 10 min/mile pace.
As I said, the Columbus Day Runabout is a family tradition for us so here's a little look back at some previous runs:
Look how little Water was!
Between D traveling, sickness, and the stress of trying to bring Earth home, we didn't do the run in 2015. I really hope we can restart this as a family tradition. I love the history of it for us and feel like it's a great reminder of how our family has grown and changed through the years.
