I am doing a pre-5K report this morning because the 5K starts at 2:00PM. Then there is the obligatory pub stay that one must do after a St. Paddy's 5k run.
It is in the rules. No seriously.
To the left is the course that Lana, her mom, and I will be running today in the non-competitive heat (i.e. finishing times greater than 27 minutes).
4 laps for 3.1 miles. Hills and downhills and flats all around!
I am pretty geeked and honestly just want to finish with a smile on my face. Sub 40, sub 35, sub 33, sub whatever I will be happy.
I love runs on holidays and oddly enough I have never ran a St. paddy's day race near the actual holiday. I used to run a race in Flint that is still my favorite 4miler - the Shellalagh. Love it!
This week Friday my tri club is hosting a few runs around this part of Michigan - the Good Friday runs. 4, 6, 8, and 10 mile runs at all paces in Northville, Dearborn, and in Rochester Hills. I am pretty sure that I will go out there and do one of the runs with the club. It should be interesting!
OK - well off to finish up some things and then head out fo rmy day of fun!
