I was happy to get 7 miles in OUTSIDE today - the snow is melting and so I got soaking wet and muddy, but the sun and fresh air was so worth it!
I am excited for the Shamrock Run on Saturday. This is my first time running it and I checked the results from the last 2 years and based on that I have a good chance to get a medal in my age group - fingers crossed!

Well, I don't know that I'd call myself a runner just yet, since I'm only on my second week of C25K, but I did just sign myself up for my first race ever! A local wetlands preserve has a 'Swamp Stomp 5k' every spring, and I've been wanting to participate for ages, so this year I'm going to. It's at the end of April - hopefully I'm ready. Any words of wisdom for a complete newb's first race? (other than 'keep running' I mean, haha!)
Good luck in your race Saturday, CherryPie - hope you bring home the goods!
