Four months after my third child was born I crossed the finish line in a sprint triathlon and set a new PR! No it wasn’t through luck….I’m no elite athlete by any stretch either. While I have worked really hard, part of the secret sauce had nothing to do with me.
Most of the Running After Baby race recaps focus on my own runs/triathlons (example: Naperville sprint triathlon). Today, we’re mixing it up. I did participate in a neighborhood 5K and finally ran a sub-10 minute pace (barely!). Best part of the day…doing a 1K fun run with my five year old daughter…her first race!! Race recap for #1′s first 1K!
Sprint Tri #2 Comes EXACTLY Five Months After Pregnancy
This race recap comes as our fam is embarking on a cross-country road trip. Some have said we’re a little nuts, but its soooooo much easier than when we did this as kids. Can’t be too hard if I’m writing blog posts, right? Back to racing. On my son’s 5 month birthday, I raced in the Atheta IronGirl Sprint Triathlon in Pleasant Prairie. This also came on the heels of the Naperville Sprint Triathlon, so wasn’t sure if things would be way easier or tougher. On to the recap!
