We were supposed to have softball practice but there weren't enough of us going so practiced eating food at Ale House instead :)
Tuesday-- 1 mile in 10:29. Tamara's Starbucks Birthday Run
Kory and I joined Dad at Hot n Juicy Crawfish. I don't do spicy so I just had the garlic butter crab legs. My hands literally smelled like garlic for two days but they were some of the most flavorful crab legs I've ever had. I can't wait to go back!
Kory and I went to see The 5th Wave. I thought that there were some holes and mistakes in filming but I enjoyed the overall premise.
We went to the expo for the Celebration Marathon. I love that they gave towels this year!
And I got my outfit ready.
I slept in then met up with a bunch of MRTT ladies at Bravo! Cucina Italiana for a pre-race dinner. I had my normal boring dinner of grilled chicken, mashed potatoes and rice (well, orzo this time) but the other food looked so yummy!

I was nervous about the race because I really wanted to break 5 hours again. And I did! So I got my second best marathon time and beat last year's time by all most 2 1/2 mins. There were so many great supporters on course--lots of MRTT ladies and Faith's family! And Faith and I ran in to the finish together with a bunch of our MRTT ladies joining us!
Then later on that night--we'd just finished running a marathon--what were we going to do next? Go to Chuck E. Cheese! We went with Jordan, Ava Joy, her sister Bergen and her sister's kids.
