St Pattys 5K!

Sunday, March 10, 2013

The race went pretty well. I was a bit tired this morning, and I didn't feel ready for the race. I never feel ready though! It was a sunny day, but it was super windy. It was also chilly!! The day got nicer, but it was 40 degrees at the race. The wind was making me super cold so I actually wore my sweatshirt at the race. The race was up & back on an old airplane runway. I knew exactly how much of the race I had left to go. It was tough having a straight stretch of land at the end of the race. It looked so close, but it took much longer to actually run it!

Unfortunately the timer wasn't working, so I don't know my time yet. I am waiting for the dtag results. I am anxiously waiting for it!! I liked that the bibs had shamrocks on them! We also got nice long sleeved tech shirts. I put it on under my shirt to help keep me warm. I didn't match but I really didn't care!!

I finally got a pair of running shoes that fit! I didn't get to wear them to the race though because I didn't get to break them in yet!

I have another race April 7th. Hopefully I get to wear my new shoes then! My workout shirts are getting too big for me. I need to save up and get some new ones!

Hopefully everyone had a great weekend. Keep pushing towards your March goals! It is so nice outside I think I am going to eat dinner outside!

Here are pictures of me before the race, my bib & me after the race!

    Way to go! Even though it sounds like it was freezing out, I'm glad you got a chance to go out and do it. Those bibs are really cute!

    emoticon on completing your race. Love the bib! You should wear your shoes around the house every day to you can break them in, and they'll mold to your feet over time.
