St Patrick's Day Dash 09

The most important thing about today was that it was snowing.  The flakes were big.  The air was cold.  The ground was wet.  But the most important thing about today was that it was snowing.



The most important thing about running a race is sharing the experience.  My friend Jason ran with me.  We were wet and cold and huddled under a tree for a while.  We were happy to run the race.  But the most important thing about running a race is sharing the experience.




The most important thing about a race in the cold and wet is finishing.  You can take off your wet shoes and jacket.  You can put on dry clothes. But the most important thing about a race in the cold and wet is finishing.




The most important thing about running a race is eating some good food afterwards.  And that is the most important thing.




I should have mentioned this blog was brought to you by The Important Book By Margaret Wise Brown.  Also, so that i have a record of it my time was 42:05 for the 3.75 mile race.  A pace of 11:14. meh

YAY Nichole (and Jason, though I don't know who you are)!!! I would have had a hard time getting out for a race in this nastiness. Thanks for the good reminders about what is important. :) I'll be there with you next year.

None of these races would have happened if it weren't for your push! Love you!
