Shamrock 8K

17 Mar


This morning, bright and early, Leanne, Phil and I did the Shamrock 8K. 

A few people showed up

This race was really populated this year.  As we were running, yes we did run getting to that, more and more people kept coming up behind us.  It’s not like we were in a middle corral; we were in corral 5 only one corral behind us.  It was very strange. 

Back to the running.  Leanne and I ran from mile 1 to the end!  Go us!  I am super proud of us!  We walked through the water stops and for a brief moment when I had some jelly beans.  But, we ran and…passed people!  Not just walkers, but other runners!  Ha ha!

Since Leanne and I finished earlier than we normally do we noticed that the finish area was super crowded.  Has it always been this way??  There was a big bottleneck and no one was moving.  We decided we either have to run a lot faster or a lot slower. 

I don’t know my official race time, but I think it’s somewhere around an hour. 

The 8K was a great way to start off St. Patty’s Day! 

Now off to enjoy the rest of the day.  So far it’s included coffee, Blazing Saddles and lots of sun!
