St. Patrick’s day 5K

Well, it wasn’t on St. Patrick’s day, but the Sunday before.  🙂

It was a bit chilly at the start, but it wasn’t rainy, YAY!!  I did have my fingertipless gloves and ear warmer headband.  They came off between miles 1 & 2.  I decided to NOT listen to my iPod, I ended up turning it off sometime during the race anyway.  I just didn’t want to deal with it this time.

The first mile I ran with my sister.  Sometime between the 1st & 2nd mile, I started to pull away from her.   I was feeling pretty good.  🙂  Rounding the final corner, I texted (yes, I run with my phone and yes, I texted my Mom while I was running) that I was almost there.  She didn’t get it and she didn’t see me finish.  I was too fast.  🙂

My official time:  32:45.5

I want to run a sub 30 5K.  I should be able to do it!  I also have a 10K planned in May and I’m looking forward to it.
