back in the running...

Today I ran my first race since having Leah. It was actually only the third time I have been running since she was born...but it felt good. Ryan and I ran the Los Altos Hills Pathways 5k with some others from our ward (most of them ran the 10k...). It was probably the hardest route I have ever run mostly because it was so hilly. If you look at the pictures, off in the distance it drops off down into a big valley...we ran all the way down and then all the way back up. Yes...a gigantic hill at the very end. I did have to walk it, but so did nearly everyone else. It was the worst race time I have ever had for a 5k, but I came in 5th place in my age category! hahaha. We had a good time...and I'm hopefully getting hyped up to run the san francisco half marathon (across the golden gate bridge!) this summer and a marathon in northern california in october...we'll see how it goes!
