Sweat Your Thorns Off 5k

Saturday I took part in The Boring Runner's virtual race appropriately named Sweat Your Thorns Off 5k. Pertinent race details: It was ridiculously hot, mid-day in Austin. I pushed a 35 pound kid in a jogging stroller whose tire refuses to hold air. And I don’t enjoy 5Ks.

My race is summed up in the pictures below.


Don’t let that smile fool you, this is how I actually felt after the race. My coach assures me you're supposed to look feel like death after a 5K. Why do people do these again?
