After a poor night of sleep I headed out to the Makin' Tracks 5k. It was a cool crisp morning. The weather totally reminded me of Cross Country season which put me in a good mood. The race went off and I soon found myself alone running through the tree lined streets of River Forest. I felt smooth and fast. I was totally in the moment and enjoying running. It was quite a windy day but I enjoyed the feel of pushing into the wind and how the wind was blowing my short hair back out of my face. As I approached the third mile the High School Marching band was playing, I had a sharp turn into the stadium where the High School Cheer team was lining the track. The race ended on the start line of the track so you got to finish by running 100 meters on the track. It was a blast! I hadn't raced since August and I had missed it! I ended up fist female with a time of 18:04. This was a confidence builder for me. Just what I needed.
After the race I went to Alona's for breakfast and then we went shopping for wedding ideas in Oak Park. After that I went to a friends barbecue. It was a busy day- but a good one :)
