4.9 miles & a little bit of Irish whiskey

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Embarrassingly enough, even now, several days later I can't stand to take off my green wrist band from the post-race party from this past Saturday. You know how when you're a kid and you look forward to something sooo much, you're just so eager & happy with anticipation and then "it" happens!  Then, well everything's over because time is funny like that and doesn't stand still.  And you're just left feeling sad, sad that the day has passed, the event is over, and you are positively certain it couldn't have gone any better or been more perfect?  Well, I guess you can tell how I feel about this past Saturday and why I'm still wearing this faded green wrist band...

Our race, the entire day really, was perfect.  So cliche, I know but truly it was.   I ran great & beat last year's race time by over 9 minutes.  So yeah, I'm pretty happy, oh and proud.  As I've been posting my score on all things social media the past few days, I'm pretty sure I'm leaning towards the obnoxious side of gloating; but it's just for a few days longer, I'm having fun.

The rest of Saturday afternoon we celebrated St. Patrick's Day the best we know how.  With best friends, good food{corned beef, cabbage, Irish cheddar cheese, you know the essentials...}Irish beer, and just a little bit of Irish whiskey ;)  St. Patty's day done right.

I'm already searching for my next race to sign up for and you better believe I will be running next year's shamrock 8k.  Its safe to say I'm hooked on this running thing.

I didn't take any pictures all day, but my friend Stephanie, who is also a photographer, got some great shots of us after the race and crossing the finish line.  I can't wait to share them with you!
All I have is this awkwardly cute, self timed "family shot" of us before the race.  But I kinda love it.

Oh, and because I'm still gloating....why not!
