our first 5k

Baby A and I just ran the Valentine Day Dash in golden gate park! We lined up behind a few other strollers and took off at top speed when the horn blared. The course brought us through the “singing tunnels” where we listen for echoes and around Stow Lake where we quack at ducks. Around mile 2 a woman pushing a double stroller passed me on an uphill. I cheered her on and she returned the encouragement. Later, as Baby A started fussing, I found his favorite album on Rdio and as he recognized Boker Tov, he calmed down for the last little bit. We ran through the Tunnel of Love then sprinted to the finish line. What a perfect way to start the day!
