Shamrock Shuffle 2012


On Sunday I participated in the Chicago Shamrock Shuffle.  While my time was nothing to write home about it the fact that I completed the 8k (4.97 miles) is something to write home about.  My time was 1:12:16. Without that bathroom break I wonder what my time would have been.  Unfortunately I stood in the corral for way to long before the race started.  Oh well next time I’ll know better.  SmileYes there will be a next time.  I’m so proud that I was able to over 4 miles of the 4.97 miles.  I actually think it was closer to 4.5 but I know it was at least 4 miles.

I think I finally found the 1/2 marathon that I want to run. I just can’t bring myself to seriously consider the marathon.  Now to actually sign up.  I did sign up for a 5k on April 7th.  This should be fun.  I’m running for time.  I’m running because my daughter finally agreed to do a 5k (willingly).

Other than the 8k I was able to get out last night for 2.25 miles while my youngest roller bladed with me.  I need to get out yet today but I’m loosing my motivation REALLY fast.
