Hi friends! Thank you for your kind comments on my Rock ‘n’ Roll DC Half Marathon race recap! I can’t wait for the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler in a couple weeks. :) Fingers crossed for good and not too hot weather!

In other news – happy St. Patrick’s Day! Anyone have any fun plans? I suggest my making my Healthy Shamrock Shake, Whole Wheat Irish Soda Bread, and/or Vegan and Gluten Free Shepherd’s Pie to celebrate. 😉

I started my St. Patrick’s Day at the track! This was my first run since the race on Saturday – felt good to get back out there, especially on such a nice morning – it was gorgeous out! Cold and crisp but sunny by the time we were done. It was harder to get up since it’s dark again at that hour now thanks to daylight savings… although I am loving having bright evenings again!

This morning, our coach had us do a 20 to 30 minute tempo run at around half marathon pace – so pushing a bit but sustainable. I did 20 minutes because my legs are still a bit tired from the ra…

What do you think?
