The run went great. I finished the run in about 55 min –5 miles in under an hour is a great time for me. It helped that the route was pretty flat and in complete circle (just the way I like them). Plus there was a lot of people in costume and people setting up along the parade route so I had lots of things to keep my mind off the run. Although I did have a few angry moments when people were sporting clovers and not shamrocks. This may have helped me pick up my pace.
Before I knew it I was crossing the finish line and had completed by first St. Patrick’s day run. And to celebrate my awesome run and St. Patrick’s day my mom bought me a cupcake. What could be better a run to burn on the calories and a cupcake to replace them.
To top off the St. Patrick’s day fun I registered for the run as Erin Corkery, so for this run I was good ole Erin Corkery – something I haven’t been on paper for 5 years! Maybe that is why I ran so fast? Probably not but it’s fun to pretend. And it was fun when I picked up my shirt to say Erin Corkery. Yes, I am easily amused!
