The TUTU 10K


Some of you may remember a LOOOONG time ago (June 1st)  my husband sister in law and I ran a Tutu 10K relay? Well, I never did a recap of the run because I wanted to wait until the news of Baby Jimenez was announced.

So, now that it's announced. I will give you the long awaited recap!

Location: Key West, Florida.

Course: We began in a restaurant parking lot right on the beach mostly followed the water line and at a certain spot turned around.

Format:
Teams could be as big as you wanted, but it must contain 3 people.

The Experience:
Passing the TUTU!
At the time of the race, I was about 7 weeks pregnant. At that time, I was experiencing extreme fatigue and trying not to be moody (since no one knew I was expecting!) So, when the humidity was close to 100% and the temperature was not far behind I was NOT having a good run. Truth be told, if my sister in law hadn't been with me for part of the run I probably would have cried during the run.

Now, MY experience was directly related to where I was in my life (a.k.a. trying to figure out how to share
a body with a growing baby!)

The Tutu Relay experience was a blast! It was a small local race filled with lots of food (brought by volunteers) and free beer for runners at the end. I know a lot of runs have free beer at the end. However, this was different because it honestly felt like you were walking up to a pic-nic table of friends and sharing a beer. I didn't drink a beer, but that was my sense of the experience.

It was an adorably fun run, and I loved sharing the experience with my family!
