My SIL, Amanda, and I recently ran the Shamrock the Ville 5K in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. The day was gorgeous and it was Amanda's first 5K so we were both pretty excited. The run started at 1:00, since I am typically a morning runner I wasn't sure if I should attempt to eat lunch early or wait until after, I decided to eat a mini-sized Cliff bar (100 calorie) at 11:00. In hindsight I should have eaten a bit more, live and learn.
Amanda had picked up a few fun accessories for the race.
Caution white legs ahead - I usually tan in the spring to prevent blindingly white legs, but well I am getting to the age where I am more concerned about wrinkles than white legs. So sorry tanning industry, no more lovely warm beds for me :(
The most wonderful Amanda
Although it was windy, we had a great run, we finished in 32 minutes, and felt great! Lunch and margarita's at Chili's followed by pedicures and frozen yogurt to celebrate!
And I discovered I really really like dressing up to run! Going to have to find more theme races!
