Race recap: Shamrock Shuffle + April challenge.

Here is my Shamrock Shuffle 8k race photo recap:
The morning started out chilly, 26 degrees! I was in the third wave of runners, and it was so nice to have a starting time after 9am. The crowd of runners was intense since this race includes thousands of participants, but it was fun to weave in-between people and made the run go back quickly.

Race results:
Finished in 48:55
Pace of 9:51/mile
13,907th place, out of 30,115

I took a quick photo while running in the last few blocks towards the finish line {this probably means I should have been trying to finish faster...}

Bananas at the finish line are the best. This pile was epic and stretched on and on:

I have one more thing to share before my reading nightcap: a favorite blog of mine, Peanut Butter Runner, is holding an April Challenge to drink one green smoothie everyday this month. I'm taking this challenge - be sure to check it out here. My first smoothie of the month was a Cherry Chocolate Protein Smoothie!
