Shamrock 5k run
Sunday, March 18, 2012
This morning was Portland, OR 34th annual Shamrock Run! We had 32,000 runners total, and 11,000 of those were in the 5k that I did! WOW!
We started out this morning prepared for snow and rain to make its way, as we were counting down the minutes to the start the rain started to come down and Im just thinkin, Great! Another soggy run like last year, but to our suprise when we crossed over the start line and out came the blue sky! (gotta love unpredictable portland weather lol) It was a great 5k run I did with my friend Melissa! So glad I did it! I had originally signed up for the 15k but wasnt able to train for it, so Im glad I still slapped on my running shoes to knock out the 5k, I always feel like Ive accomplished something when I finish, running is something I truly LOVE. I love to hear nothing but encouragement from other runners, people cheering you by on the sidelines, and the FACT that I made a healthy decision that day! Plus the cool shirts arent to bad either! :)
Heres some pics I got, I didnt bring my phone so I didnt get to many!
This was also Babys first Run! :)
We finished at 31:33!
