Pretty sure I barely slept last night! We were all up by 6am getting ready for the race.
It was really cold out but at least it wasn't raining...yet!
We headed down to the start of the race and picked up our packets.
With this being my 1st 5K I really had no idea what to expect.
I decided to stay with Taylor (Brooke's sister) as she had never ran a 5K before either.
We pushed each other to the finish!
We didn't walk and ran the whole thing!
It started raining just after we got started. Luckily the wind was not blowing in Chicago that day by the Lake. I didn't notice how freezing it was until we were all finished.
I took this picture with my phone/ipod/run meter.
Later, I was told that I wasn't running fast or hard enough if I was able to take a photo. :)
After the race all soggy and cold!
I decided to run this race even before I knew I was pregnant so had been training since the beginning of January. I checked with my doctor and she thought it would be just fine for me to run as long as I was feeling ok. I'm so happy that I was able to cross that finish line for Baby Charlotte!
