march races in review

i did three races in march. two of them were, sadly,  without my cheering section. on st patricks day i ran a 5k with some girlfriends. jeremy and jakey decided to sleep in. i met beka at her house and we drove with our friend shelly to the race, which started at 8:30. WRONG! it started at 8 and we were walking from the parking lot to the starting line when we heard the gun go off. so we sprinted to join the pack and ran most of the race with everyone we were meeting. a little bit of a stressful way to start a race, but it was a fun run anyways. one of my silly socks kept falling down so i decided it was just making a statement.

the next morning was the final tri that i am participating in in the ymca series i have been doing. i beat my time by over a minute and my original time by almost ten. it was definitely improvement, mostly thanks to the 10k training ive been doing with the start to finish group from gorun wichita. we had our halfway goal race last weekend. this was my first 5k that i actually raced since jakey was born. i ran the whole way and wound up with a personal record of 26:09. it was great! the weather was perfect and it was fun to run with all the people i have been training with for several weeks.

i've got another race this weekend - the easter sun run, with most of the same girls from the st patricks race. its a 10k, which i am not ready to actually race, but it'll be fun anyways. theres always coffee at the roastery or whatever the name of the cute place in college hill is afterwards.
