I've talked a little here about my first half Marathon race coming up next month. I'm so nervous and will probably always question if I am capable of doing it or not! But in the meantime I decided to do this fun, fund-raiser 5k race just for kicks. I'm already in running condition so why not! This is the first 5k that I've done where I've been doing double or more in my daily runs. So I was wondering how fast I could do it. My goal for the race was all 3 miles under 9 min each! And guess what - the average time was 8:30 min/miles and total time was 26 min 24 sec! I was stoked.
|The Venue was not even close to big|
enough for as many people as came out for the
race! So crowded everywhere!!!!
|My poor two boys get dragged out to these races and never|
seem too thrilled about it!
|Me and my wonderful supportive Husband|
|AHHHHH - so crowded!!!!! 2800 people trying to fit into a tiny place|
and race on a tiny course!
|Coming into the finish! so many people!!!! and notice the 7yr old boy|
keeping up with me! yeah - makes me feel real good!
The point of me telling you this is - Paul is an amazing runner!!! I mean very very fast and very good! Like he finished 3rd american in the Boston marathon last year - and he went to the Houston Olympic trials this year. Anyways - he WON the whole race!!! 2800 racers and he beat them all!!!!!!!! And we know him and he is our friend!!!!! He has been so supportive and helpful with my training too! I wanted to get a picture with him just to say I know him - but I don't think he would've appreciated that - he's so not-cocky about his ability! and probably won't even be thrilled with the fact that I wrote about him. ha!
|Richard was amazing and took a picture of this! Who does this????!!!?? A man|
dressed in this suit just walking around!!!!??? CRAZY!!!
|as good as we could get :(|
|So sunny - hard to get a good picture!|
|Watching in awe|
and eating a year's worth of candy :)
Yeah - needless to say Landon was tired!
He looks irish to me though! Look at that red hair
and that white belly :)
And that my friends was an amazing and satisfying St. Patrick's day spent with family and friends!
