I ran the Shamrock Shuffle 8K in Chicago this past Sunday. It was perfect weather - mid- to upper 50s, sunny and a nice breeze to cool us off. Last year the Shamrock Shuffle was the first race I had ever done, and it got me hooked.

This year was even better than last year! I had so much fun running with 34,000+ runners through the streets of Chicago and I finished in 56:42 - almost 14 minutes faster than last year!!! Oh, and I ran the whole thing except for stopping to drink some Gatorade...I still haven't mastered moving and drinking from a cup at the same time :)

Finished the Oakland Running Festival 5K taking a minute off my previous best time. No rain but my new waterproof racing jacket came in handy.

I'm running the 5K at the Oakland Running Festival on Sunday. Forecast calls for rain... could be my first soggy run.

I am running my first "long" race--15K on Sunday! This is a little warm up for my first half marathon race in May! A tad nervous, but I know I will get thru it--not looking for "speed" here, working on the endurance piece--longest run so far on the treadmill is 8 miles--this will be the longest on the road! Yikes!!
