Last Saturday the whole family and i decked ourselves out in green and went down to the St Pats run...
i had picked up a few fun things here and there to be all festive, some of which were a bunch of buttons that i wore here and there...i had lost a lot of them to my girls before the race ever started and after i was done running they were taking the rest off of me as fast as they could
The start was packed! Not the most ideal of starts if you are wanting to get a personal best, but fun and festive! I spent the first mile dodging, weaving, and barely missing car mirrors of cars parked along side the road.
I did not feel good during this race! I wanted to stop more than once. I have no idea what my problem was besides the fact that i felt hungry. I had eaten but maybe just a little too early since the race wasn't till 10 am. Me plus running hungry equals no bueno!
I had set out in my mind to beat my previous 4 mile time of 30:15 and honestly i thought i was way behind that but ended up finishing in 30:27. Apparently i didn't have my math brain turned on either or i think i could have made up 15 seconds! Here is my official stats. I am going to start saving these this way...i was recently looking back at some of mine i had saved from years ago and enjoyed looking through them so i figure some day i will enjoy looking back at these...

The kids got their faces painted while i ran. It was a fun morning and we went and celebrated with a pizza buffet afterward.
