St.Patrick Race Recap

Didn't have to get up early to day for the St. Patrick  race because,  it didn't start till 11:00.  I'm not a fan of late start races but Oh well.   I got there early because I didn't have time to pickup my packet on Saturday.  I  also wanted to take some pictures before the race, so I would have some to put on my blog.  My running partner and I dressed  up for this race. I love to dress up, it makes the  race that much  more fun. 

When Kerri from Tutu Runner did her recap on her St.Patrick race, I absolutely loved  her tutu she was wearing.  I commented on how I wish I had a tutu to wear at my St.Patrick race.  Lo and behold she sent me a tutu . How awesome is that. 

Kerri runs with Team in Training.  She ran the Chicago Marathon last October 2010.  She sells tutus ( any color any size) to raise money for the leukemia and lymphoma society, to fund Blood Cancer Research.
 So if you like my tutu, checkout the Tutu Runner .

  It was pretty windy today  and we were running into the wind till, around mile 4.  The last mile was all downhill, baby. Boy I was loving that. I need to start packing my water with me even on short races because, it was pretty warm here by 11:00 .  They only had one water stop for the 5k at 1 mile and for the 10k at 5 miles. I was dying of thirst.   At mile  4  a couple of guys in a  SUV  offered  me a cold  bottle of water  to take a drink.  I told them they were sweet hearts. I was really needing that drink, I was dying of thirst.
