First Run of 2013 = Success

Is it really April already? How did that happen??
I let too much time slip away - I need to get caught up.
I ran my first 5k of 2013 on St. Patrick's Day. 
It. Was. Ridiculously. Cold.
But I fought through...
the burning my lungs,
the chilled wind causing my nose to be a continuous faucet,
the bitter temperature.
And you know what? I accomplished my goal! 
I set out to beat my last timed race, and I did!
My final time was 35:47 - 48 seconds faster than last time.
I want to continue improving that number throughout the rest of the year.

With the help of Pinterest, I decided to make a festive tutu for the run :)


Start of the race!

Annnnd we're done! Nothing like finishing a race to Queen's "Fat Bottomed Girls" :)

Tom's idea of celebrating a great race? Irish Car Bombs - I let him celebrate alone on that one ;)
