Irish Run at a good pace!

March 15, 2014

I ran with the Pacesetters again this morning. Just to be festive, I decided to wear my new Irish Beanie I picked up the other day:

I picked up one for Greg too, because we’re both volunteering at the St. Pat’s Run/Walktomorrow, and I wanted to get some Irish stuff. I completed my outfit today with a green shirt:

So after that photo was taken, my friend Stephanie said – “Hey! Are you the one who took the photos last week?” I was like “um….yes?” She laughed and told me that apparently I got her butt in one of the photos and about 4 people on Facebook had let her know about it, hehe! I asked if we were still good and she said we totally are, and took this photo with me after the run to prove it :)

I worried if I would be warm enough in just my Smart Wool base layer and that shirt, but I was fine! It was great weather:

This is the route we ran, which you can see is virtually the same as what we ran last week, but 2 miles shorter, for a total of 6:

Also – I DIDN’T FALL!!! Woot!!

We did a shorter run because we agreed to push the pace. I ran an average 8:46/mile!!! I know for many people that’s typical, but that’s FAST for me!! I was so happy!

It was a small group, because I forgot that the Fox Cities Marathon Run in Reverse was today, as well as the Shamrock Shuffle in Oshkosh. Still fun though!

Oh, and before I forget – Happy Birthday Norman! Great to run with you for a bit on your birthday!

Later, I finally did it…I tempted fate and brought Delores in for her spring tune up. Watch…mother nature will reward me with an epic snowstorm, haha. :) The mechanic was great and let me back while he did a brief inspection and talked to me about Delores’ history.

Sorry the pic is bad, it didn’t look so blurry on my little iPhone screen.

They’re going to keep Delores for A WEEK. UUGHHH. But, I will survive. It will be worth it when I can take her out of the Pain Cave (aka my spare bedroom) and actually get her outside.

And this I thought was great – what fits in better with a bunch of cyclists and bike tools than a bunch of bananas? After all, endurance athletes love bananas! ;)

Hope you all had a good Saturday too – and go easy on the green beer if you have any today/tomorrow!! ;)
