St. Patrick's Day 5K

There was a St. Paddy's 5K on the base yesterday.  Cameron and I joined a group of ladies and their babies from our neighborhood to run it!  This was Cameron's third race.

It's just a bit chilly in the mornings and evenings here so I always dress Cameron in footed pajamas when we go running.  I actually didn't have anything green for her to wear for the race but her pajamas do have lime green flowers on them... close enough!

I love running skirts so I was thrilled to find this gray and green Under Armour Escape Knit Skort II at Sports Authority on a sales rack!  It was very comfortable for running and short enough to fit my 5'1" frame well.

For the past month, Cameron has been sitting up in the Bob stroller for our runs.  I have a Summer Infant Snuzzler in the Bob which adds soft comfort and support for her.  She does awesome when we go running.  I attach a pacifier and some ring toys to the harness for her and she just zones out and enjoys the ride.  I usually only run 30 to 40 minutes with her.  I am waiting to do longer runs until Johnnie gets home so that she doesn't have to sit longer than that in the stroller.

We ran at a comfortable pace (I could still carry on a conversation) and still finished in 33:58 - that's faster than last month's race and I physically felt better running this month as well.  I really look forward to running races, especially when I have friends to run with.  The level of energy and excitement exuding from everyone who participates is contagious and exhilarating!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day and may good luck smile upon you today!
