My First Race as a MOM

A few weeks ago I ran a 5k. I had run many 5k races before, but this was my first 5k race as a mom. This also happened to be the first 5k race that I ran while pushing my baby in her stroller. Running with the stroller wasn’t the hard part. I run with my baby sometimes at the track in the park that’s close to my house. The hardest part was trying to run when there were many walkers in my path. the race course had many narrow paths so I wasn’t able to go around them. My baby slept through most of the race and when she woke up, she didn’t cry. My time was 41 mins, which was my second slowest 5k time ever. I feel like I could’ve done better, but I am happy that I ran my longest run since giving birth. Although I probably won’t run any races with her, I will continue running at the park with her.
