They had race day packet pickup only. I only registered for this race about a week ago. That is totally strange for me. It was only $35 for both of us. Not a bad deal.
|The bling is a little boring, but it's not bad for the price of the race. They also give every mom a carnation as they cross the finish line.|
We hit Starbucks on the way...of course...and were parked and ready to go by 6:30am.
|We set in the car for a bit while Trent slept and I sipped my coffee.|
|It a relatively new building. Trent loved the tall escalators.|
|Packet pickup was on the 2nd floor patio. It had a great view.|
Trent entertained himself by exploring the entire convention center.
|I was just super excited because they had real bathrooms!|
|Outside they had a variety of snacks...that Trent enjoyed.|
|....and he kept trying to get me to enjoy with him.|
|Super cute! And they give all the kids a medal for finishing.|
Last year I told Trent just to run and I would keep up. He did a sprint, stop, repeat all the way to the finish line. Our time was round 32 minutes.
This year I talked him into letting me pace us. I figured we would try to stay around 10 minute miles and then I would let him sprint in at the end.
He did awesome!
|He is doing the moon walk here in the middle of the race.|
|We finished in under 30 minutes and we were both super excited about that.|
Great way to start my Mother's Day weekend! I love this new tradition. Maybe Audrie will be ready to join us next year.
