My race goals were as follows:
1 - Finish, and not in last
2 - Never stop moving
3 - Come in under 45 minutes
Considering this was my first running race EVER, I think I did pretty darn well.
FEMALE AGE GROUP: 19 - 24Well under my goal! Yes! I lost Midge and Sarah about a mile in (they outpaced me), but that's quite alright. I had my iPod to keep me company.

Sadly, I didn't even think about having some Flogging Molly or Dropkick Murphy's, which would have been perfect for the Shamrock Run, until we were gathering at the start line. I'm really pleased with the results, as I was out to beat no one but myself (and at least 100 people that were still behind me). I definitely have the race bug now and can't wait to run another one.
In other fitness news, my waist measurement is smaller than it was in December and it's been noted that I look like I've lost weight. YES!!
