Presidio Cross Country 5k

It took me 8 hours to get home from Southern California, but I was determined to get home so that I could run the Presidio Cross Country 5k with my running club.  I need to complete 10 races with DSE by the end of the year so that I will be eligible for the Mongo Trophy!  Yes, I am a bling whore, what can I say.  I made it home a little after midnight and woke up early on Sunday morning to get to The Presidio.  I met up with Ultra Woof, "Weird Haired Mom" and her kids, and all my DSE Peeps.

You gotta love this shot.  I told the kids to do something funny and this is what they gave me!

It took my about an hour to get this very hilly 5k done.  At one point it was all uphill in sand! This was not an easy course, especially after having run a full marathon the day before.  I'm glad I was able to get this recovery run in.  My alarm clock was my worst enemy this morning, but I'm glad I got out of bed to run this race!

Woo Hoo! After the race, we all went to breakfast!
