Saturday, March 12 was the official day for the 2nd Annual Nun Run. I woke up at 4:45am to cook breakfast and get ready to run. Papi woke up at 6:30am and was certain to rally the troops. Dad got home at 7am. He ate breakfast and got ready ready for the run.
We went out at 7:45am to start our run at 8:00am.
Everyone was excited to be outdoors. Sweetie had shoe troubles, her laces were too long. She forgot all about it once she got moving.
Sparkles agreed to have some pre-race fun. She joyfully warmed up as Sr. Carmen Maria Bernadette.
We decided to run the first mile together. Rose had to opt out of running. She is still recovering from an injury.
Runners, take your mark!
The girls pushed themselves and ran hard.
Here are the 1 mile race results:
- Sweetie -11:32
- Sparkles - 11:48
- Dragonfly - 11:54
Papi – ran his own race and did not go for time.
Rose took the littles back home after their 1 mile run. Dad and I continued for the remainder of our 10K.
I’ve ran many miles over the past 2 months. Still, running doesn’t seem to get easier for me. I must make a new conviction each mile to persevere, to glorify God with everything I do. I meditate on Christ’s Passion when I run. It is through Him that I find my strength.
Lena’s 10K time – 60 min 57 sec
Dad was kind enough to run with me despite his lack of sleep. He was a wonderful running partner.
Here we are post race, 6.2miles.
