Shamrock Run

Thursday, March 22, 2012

Pretty happy with myself :-) Finished the 5K in 30:39 and would have been under 30 minutes if I hadn't had to stop to wait on a max train to cross.
This is the first actual "competitive" thing I have done in 20 years, so it's a great feeling that I wasn't even close to last. Probably silly, but I also kept telling myself that I would not be beat by the guys in giant Guinness can suits and I managed to stay just in front of them the whole time. (It must suck to run inside of those things!) Enjoyed my beer afterwords and felt pretty good other than my left leg stiffened up on the way back to the car (that was parked almost another 5K away). Nothing a little stinky Icy Hot couldn't fix.
Next up - Portland to Coast walk in August and I'm trying to get the hubby to do the Warrior Dash with me.
