My goal for the race was to run the majority of it and only take breathers walking if I had to. Thankfully my sister was with me and offered to push Destructo because the running path was narrow in spots and dirt, gravel, zoo bamboo paths. I never could have ran even the majority of it if I had to push the stroller and Destructo.
I successfully completed the race running the entire thing except for the loose gravel because my feet kept slipping around and I was afraid I would twist my ankle and then I walked by the wallabies because they were adorably cute and fighting and jumping. My time for the race was 32:55.4 or 10.37 per mile. If I had known my time was that good, I definitely wouldn't have stopped to take off my jacket and tie it around my waist. I probably could have been closer to 10 per mile. But overall I am super proud of myself and excited to run another one and try to better my time!
Here are some pics from the run:
