st paddy's day run

No lie in this Sunday morning.  At 6.30am I was up and ready to go for my first ever official 8k run.  What a better way to begin my 'running career' than at the 35th Shamrock Run here in Portland.   And not a better person to run with than my lovely Irish friend Mary.

What started as a cold dark morning, turned into blue skies and sunshine.  Music from local bands and cheers from the crowds made this event so much fun.  And the people watching was priceless.  I doubt there were many people not wearing something in emerald green.

Mary and I did a great run. The weeks or training paid off and the 8k flew by without any trouble.  Maybe next year we'll go for the 15K!

Hope you had a fun St Patrick's Day.


  1. That would have been a fun run. I am doing the Color Run in two weeks. I am sure I will come in last, but I can't wait for them to throw all the colors at me! Have a great week!

  2. Well done! Sounds like you had a great day x


Thanks for stopping by.
