I accidentally left the best part out of yesterday’s race recap.
I am happy with how the race went. Truly. But that doesn’t change the fact that I am still quite a bit slower than I was before having Ruby. I tried to explain this to my mom by saying that my 10K pace was 7 seconds/mile slower than my half marathon PR pace.
Only she interrupted me.
Right after I said, “My 10K pace was 7 seconds/mile…”
She said, “Wow!!!”
Never underestimate a mother’s pride.
