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.
2- Mile - 10:13
3-Mile - 10:42
4- Mile - 10:51
5 - Mile - 11:24
6 - Mile -10:55
Not the best times, but as I say I'm work in progress. Time 1:04
Here is a couple of picture with the tutu's. The tutu's were a big hit at the race.
