light energy snack on the way to the race in the car- pistachiooooos.
*flashback* this is my awesome friend Krystal and i with our baby bumps exactly one year ago at the Bayou City Classic 10K 2011! we were both expecting boys and finally met them about two months later.
i couldn’t tell ya what our time was cause we talked about baby stuff the whole way and didn’t even pay attention. great times.
it rained the entire time!!!
i threw my shoes into the washing machine along with my soaked clothes afterwards- the rain did not let up. steady drizzle from start to finish.
making my way through the rainy downtown streets to the start line.
first time for everything! put a towel over my head, secured it with my visor, turned on my ipod, and just ran. i finished around 54 minutes. this race had THE best post race food yet- breakfast tacos, chicken breast / fresh fruit bowls, and protein bars galore.
i even saw made-to-order toastadas!! i didn’t get one though cause i already had waaaay too much crap in my hands.
they upgraded from regular cotton t-shirts to the jersey/mesh-like material this year.
i cleaned up, huh!
i saw spindletop (one of our anniversary dinner spots) in the distance and took one last shot before heading home.
my first and only niece is having her 1st birthday party today! i sped home and got ready for the festivities. i kept my hair wrapped and pinned underneath that towel during my run. even though it was completely soaked through, my hair didn’t look half bad after i let it air dry. which is great cause i sure didn’t feel like flat ironing it.

i will be well prepared for a day full of screaming kiddos as my son’s 1st b-day approaches, whew. i sure could use that extra hour of sleep we are losing tonight!!
