St. Pattys Day 5k
And the St. Patty’s Day 5K with the family is done.
This was my first race in Atlanta, and my first time in Piedmont Park.
It was a “go your own pace and we will cheer you on as you cross” race for all of us. Alex’s fiancee came to cheer us on, despite the early hour and chilly temps, which really helped in mile 2.
I have to say all of us did mightyyyyyy fine. We pushed ourselves really hard, up the hills and passed the mile markers, until we saw the coveted red timer at the end.
I ranked 94 of all the ladies to run and there were roughly 400 of us, so I am pretty pleased. I kept it under 31:00 minutes. I also like that the slip says “Name of Athlete,” thus making me feel like, well, an athlete.
I am incredibly excited for our next sibling run, a 4 mile trail run over Easter weekend. We all decided the theme would be pink. Buckling down starts Monday. Today: Chicken, Donuts, and Hard Cider to celebrate our hard work this morning.
