I completed my first post-baby race this past Saturday. It was almost a full week after Earth Day, but hey, who's counting?! When I did this race a few years ago it was followed by a nice event with local vendors and businesses doing 'green' things: education, giveaways, promotions. It was a good time, and when I signed up this year I looked forward to taking G. She stayed home with Grami but at least the race fees went to something I feel strongly about.
Here's the best part though. We stuck around for raffle drawings since so few people showed up to run due to the weather. I ended up winning a package with a Carhart shirt (gift for the hubs for coming along and taking pics!) a gift certificate for a rafting trip (so excited to use that this summer!) and a gift certificate to a tattoo parlor! I'm thinking about adding a little flower in G's birth month near the sun I already have on my back. Just a subtle ode to her and everything that went into being able to have her. Can't wait for the next one...race and baby both ;-) Haf marathon training officially begins next Monday. For real this time!!!
