Shamrock 4 Miler

On Saturday Ryan, Mason, and I ran the Shamrock 4 Miler.  It was my second time running this race (had to skip it last year) and I was looking forward to really pushing myself.

I made Ryan push Mason in the jogging stroller so that I could concentrate on racing and not be held back.  Poor guy hadn't run all week and definitely hasn't had as much practice pushing the stroller as I have.  But those 2 totally rocked the race and finished in under 35 minutes.
My final race time was 30:49 minutes.  I was really hoping to do a sub 30 minute race but unfortunately that didn't happen.  
Mile 1 - 7:39
Mile 2 -7:40
Mile 3 - 7:48
Mile 4 - 7:42

I placed 6th in my age group, 90th overall.

I haven't run since Saturday ... I wish I have.  Mason has had a runny nose and I can't (shouldn't) bring him to the gym day care when he isn't well (for his sake and the other kids).
Plus Charlotte decided to pass the Spring bandwagon and is still in cold Winterville. 

Currently I am not signed up for any races but am itching to find my next one.  I would really love to work on my speed and do a couple of 5k's but the possibility of an April half marathon entices me.
