On the eve of Mother’s Day, Mr Surfer instructed me to get up early the following morning. I had to be dressed in my running gear and also pack a change of clothes. Not giving me any further details, it was all a big surprise.
8:30am on Mother’s Day, I found myself in line to register for the 5 kms Mother’s Day Classic (Welcome to Surprise Number One).
At 9:30am in freezing temperatures of 2 degrees, I started the race.
At around 10am, I finished it in 31 minutes 23 seconds, coming in at 513 in a crowd of 1,291. 75th among the other 268 in my age group. The 321st female out of the 948 participants. Not bad, yes?
Then at 11am, it was time for Surprise Number Two:
An hour and a half Thai massage…
Mr Surfer did good this year. He did real good.
How was your Mother’s Day?
Linking up with Trish over at My Drummer Boys for Wordless Wednesday. Happy Hump Day!
