The St. Patrick's Day Run Report

Last April a group of my college besties and I ran a marathon relay and had the best time. We also have a standing Girls Weekend the last weekend of July each year and I can not get enough of these girls- they are the best friends a girl could ask for! Plus, two of them grew up with my hubby and introduced us way back in late 1992.

This year we decided we would all run the half. Since none of us live in the same town these days, we've been doing our training separately. Stephanie found a St. Patrick's Day run near me and we planned a fun weekend that included the morning race and going our for dinner and drinks, husbands included.


This is what Cory wanted to wear. Since the temperature here can be 20 one day and 80 the next (hell, the same day even!), it's truly hard to plan your wardrobe too far in advance.


See these long sleeves, pants, and knee socks? Very handy when it's in the 30s! I am well aware that the Yankees cap doesn't go with the green theme, but it was raining! (And yes, eqsmom and East Coast Girl, I know you don't approve of the hat.)

Super-special thanks to Chic Runner who coached me on what kind of pants to buy the day before the race since I typically stay indoors on the treadmill when it's this cold! I got these at Target and loved them- specially the zippered back pocket for my key.

We ran in an 8K that had pizza and green beer at the finish! My kind of race!

That afternoon we met at 4 for dinner and drinks. Because we're senior citizens already at 35.


I truly love all your girls and can't wait for our night at the M family farm and our Mexico trip this summer! I miss you all and had the best time with you this weekend! Smooches!



Pimpin' green sequin style.



Many drinks and a few Red Headed Sluts later..... I have no idea what the 4 means......

Pin It!

Man, running looks like a big ol' party in your parts! I wish we had beer and pizza at the end of our runs. I'd run a lot more if that was the case, hee heeee! Good luck on your next 1/2 marathon! Just finished one and I'm losing my big toenail over it with no beer at the end of the run to make it worth it :(

I suck..I know it...so I will excuse the Yankees cap. Although, it is bad form to wear that along with mucho St Patrick's day green. :D
