Today I ran the Luck of the Irish 10K - and finished all six of the Winter Run Series 10Ks! In the photo I am wearing the "I Raced Them All!" hoodie (over all my other layers). I am proud of myself!
The weather was a big part of this race - cold (28), damp and windy. The weather, the hills and repetitive nature of the course made this a challenging race. We skipped some walk intervals in order to stay warm, especially at the beginning. This race for me was just about finishing and earning the sweatshirt. I am persistent (AKA stubborn) that way! :)
And, I have learned that not every race is for every runner. I like fun events - cool names & t-shirts, interesting routes, decent parking. I'm looking forward to the next race - the 2 Pi Mile Run in Madison, WI! It's put on by the Engineering Society and we get pie afterwards! :) And later in the year we'll do again a little but FUN race called the Cheesehead Run.
I'm ready for spring to get here!
Thank you for reading, Friends!
