This Saturday, I ran the St. Patrick's Day race with my friend Lesli
(her husband, Brett, went to high school with David).
Look how cute we are before the race!
It was a rainy Saturday, but not terribly cold. It was a nice change from the race the year before...
I love this race...11,000 people ran it. That makes for some awesome people watching.
There were a bunch of guys wearing green boxers while they were running...and I sprinted ahead of Lesli to take their picture. Sad, though, cause I can't find them in the picture.
Looky, a man in a kilt. Brrrrrr!
Most amazingly, there was a group of people PUSHING a keg in a shopping cart.
Somehow, people were managing to do MOVING keg stands.
That amazes me. Even in college, I couldn't master a keg stand that was stationary. These people did them in the morning, while running 5 miles.
Nothing but impressed here.
I kind of wish I was the girl who got to ride on the cart. No gonna lie.
Lesli finishes the race!!!!
We finished in just under an hour. I had a blast running it with Lesli--it was her first race ever and she was happy to have finished. It was really cool to run a race to motivate someone else and not trying to beat the clock on PR from last year's race. A couple of times she told me to go on and she would catch up, but I think one of the main rules of running is that you don't leave someone behind when you've agreed to run with them, right?
Plus, I had run my 11-miler on Friday and was still sore.
I think we look just as cute after the race as before.
I think I've been watching too much wrestling :)
Later that night, I went to my friend Jen's bachelorette party...where we took a pole dancing class.
Sadly, horribly, I left my camera memory card in my computer :( Other girls promised they would send on pictures...so a post will wait until those trickle in. It was a blast!!
