St Pattys day

Yesterday I ran the Race for the Cure 5k.
My goal for the race was to finish in under 36 minutes.
Well, I didn't make my goal but I came pretty stinkin close.
My official time was 36:13!
I wa so excited.
My previous 5k PR was around 39 minutes so I am super happy with 36:13.
Next weekend is my triathlon, I dont feel as nervous as I think I should.
I have been swimming and running but I haven't even gotten on my bike yet.
I hope I remember how to even ride.
I really need to practice a couple times this week.
My goal for the tri is to just finish.
I would love to run the entire 5k but I am afraid that I might be exhausted after swimming 800 yards and biking 12 miles.
So finishing is my number one priority.
I better get training.
This is Melinda and me at the start line.
It was a fun race, with a ton of great free goodies.
That blueish greenish shirt was the closest thing I own to green. 
And I didn't have any beer this St. Pattys day.
Kinda sad.
Hope you all had a great weekend!

  2. I chalk up those 13 seconds to the fact that you have to wait for others to start moving before you can get your jog on! Good time!
