The Smith Clan happily participated and ran for a great cause.
It was the 27th Annual St. Patty's Day Dash, 4mile jaunt through Seattle!
It was a dreary day for a run, but we broke Gabe in with his first "organized run" in a memorable way -- soaking wet! He has been my biggest cheerleader this past year (Beat the Bridge 8k and Jingle Bell 5k), and volunteered him in my crazy event like the Metro Dash AND our next event, the Warrior Dash in July!
Getting ready to get our run on ... with a sea of people.
Rob, Gabe, Mennen, me, Jen, Jon
AND post run ... Wet little leprechauns!!
Me, Kelsey (so weird having a friend w/ same name), Mollie, Emi
Kyle and Gabe
I wasn't thrilled with my time since I have been sick all week and it was rough with lungs feeling out of "whack." I am still finishing up my round of antibiotics ..... but what-ev!! It was fun and completing it with Gabe was one for us to write down on the books. He was sweet to stay with me, but he could have shaved another 7 minutes off our 31:42 time!
I was shooting to beat my 7:30 pace from my last 8k.
Better luck next time when I'm not sicky :(
