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. Yes 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. http://womenrockmn.org/information/ 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.
