Yesterday I participated in my first 5K – the St. Patrick’s Day Dash.
“A 5k dash, at Seattle Center, to celebrate the arrival of Spring and the Irish in us all.”
My sister and I entered together and we had a lot of fun. Honestly, I have woken up that early on the weekend in a long time, but it was a great way to start the day. We got parked and to the Start by 8am. It was consistently raining the whole time and the course had a few long slopes and a short steeper incline just before the finish line.
My goal was to finish in 30 minutes. I was so excited when I found out my time was 28 minutes 51 seconds. There are few feelings better then setting a goal and beating it!

I am currently looking for my next 5K. If you know of any in the Greater Seattle Area, let me know!
P.S. I am SO sore today!
