Weekend Review: Run for Liberty 5K Race Recap

Thursday: Run for Liberty 5K
Saturday: 6.3 mile run outside

The hubs and I had an extended weekend since we both took Friday off. Who wants to work the day after the Fourth of July anyway?!

Unfortunately, there was a LOT of rain. All weekend.

Fortunately the rain held off for the Liberty 5K. It's super close to our house and I have run this race for the past few years with friends.

We had a pretty big group this year!
It was only around 70 degrees this year, which is about 30 degrees cooler than last year.
And I'm not exaggerating.

It was cool and cloudy, but still very humid!
I didn't wear my Garmin and ran the race alone, so I really had no idea what to expect.

I sure surprised myself though!

41 BETHANY 1689 33 F 24:12 7:49 2/17 F3034 7/75 F

Woohoo! 41st overall, 2nd in my age group and 7th woman overall.
Not too shabby!

We had 2 age group winners and 3 age group 2nd places in our group!
Way to go!

After the race we celebrated with a delicious breakfast back at Erin and Carter's house.
It was a great start to the long weekend!

Hubs injured his leg playing softball last week, so we had to keep a close eye on it and couldn't do too much at one time.

Fortunately it is healing, but I think it's going to be a while before it's 100%. 
I'm sparing you the really gross picture!

The rain and leg gave us a good excuse to watch movies and get things done around the house. We saw Man of Steel and were both slightly disappointed with it.

The rain also provided a good excuse to take our time wandering around Costco.
I found a few gems.

These will definitely make me a better swimmer, right?

Hope everyone enjoyed the holiday and hopefully a long weekend!
Now, back to reality!


  1. So sad I missed the race and the Ale 8s!

    1. We missed you too. It was SO much cooler than last year! I'll just have to drag you to another race with Ale 8s at the finish line!
