The Biggest Loser RunWalk 5K Chicago 2015 Race Recap

August 2nd was such an amazing day!!!! I participated in The Biggest Loser RunWalk in Chicago and it was without a doubt, such an amazing and inspiring event.

My day didn't start off so grand. I woke up at 5:45 AM with horrible pain in my ribs, which eventually went away right before I started the race. I wasn't hungry, but knew I had to eat. Then again, on race morning... when am I ever hungry?! My stomach was a little upset and my enthusiasm for this race was NOWHERE to be found. I wasn't hyped up, I wasn't excited.... I was just tired and in pain. Still dealing with rib pain, I arrive (AND EARLY MIGHT I ADD lol) to check-in. It was a fast and painless process. My family and I walked around for a little bit until it was time for our wave (the last wave of the morning). We were in the walking wave because we had a stroller. If you had plans on running with a stroller you had to start behind the runners with the walkers in their wave and I didn't think that was fair, so I ended up just signing us up for the walking division. I had a wedding to attend AND a 10K the following weekend, so I knew I wouldn't really feel like running anyways. It did work out in my favor though. That morning, I was so glad I signed up for the walking category to just speed walk it because of my rib pain.

WIPEOUTRUN Chicago 2015 Race Recap

My gosh......... I am finally in the process of catching up on race recaps!! I have not been consistent on the blog for the past month because life has been busy and throwing me a ton of curve balls lately. I had a one week vacation with the family, which didn't seem like much of a vacation at all. Hubby and I are in the process of trying to buy our first house together! Woot woot!! Things have been chaotic, but I hope to start becoming consistent on the blog again soon (and with different types content) as the Fall season arrives.
