Maybe I should have a kid every year

Hooray for pregnancy blood doping!

1:50:06

7 months post-partum, and over a 5 minute PR.

Wow. I'm kinda still a little shocked.

And I had enough in me at the end to dance to "Hey Ya" at the part where it says "Shake it like a Polaroid picture."

At 5 miles, I was 34 seconds off my PR. At the 10K, I PRd by four minutes.

Wow.

When I take the pressure off myself a bit, it seems to work for me.

And had a wonderful time with TriShannon and JenC, and even got to meet TriguyJT, too!

It's gonna be a great season!

You rocked it baby! Congrats! And, if the course was actually 13.1 miles, you would have easily been under 1:50. Incredible!

Thanks for hanging with me this morning and introducing me to Shannon!

Whoohoo! That's fantastic. As usual, I'm hoping to follow your inimitable lead next weekend with a 13.1 PR of my own. Congrats to you.

(Also - one of D's favorite things is to dance around with her Dad while I sing "shake it like a polaroid picture...")
