St. Patty's Day 2010
Jason and I are always looking for fun new things to do around town. We're also always on the lookout for new runs or "active" things to do to keep working out exciting. We certainly found that on St. Patrick's Day with the Blarney Stone 5k run sponsored by a local running shop. It was such a nice evening--- a bit chilly but the sun was shining and there was no snow! The run didn't begin until 6pm and when you finished there was pizza and beer! I didn't run with my camera so all the pics are from after the race at the car... obviously, being silly.
It was nice to run on some of the paved trails around Omaha. There are more then 150 miles of paved trails around town. I'm excited to explore as the mileage for the marathon training begins to add up! The Blarney Stone 5k took place on part of the trail--another great reason to run!
