The luck of the Irish to ye!!!
So, if you haven't already guessed, I'm totally into holdiays (hence my excited Valentine's Day Post)!! But as far as holidays go, St. Patrick's Day was never a big deal to me, until I met my husband. He takes this holiday seriously! So serious, he takes the day off work to celebrate. So serious that for the past 10 years (maybe more) he has gotten up at the crack of dawn to be one of the first ones at his favorite pub on St. Patty's Day. We are talking, 6:00AM!!! When we first started dating, I thought he was nuts. Then I joined him before work one year and I was hooked. It is kind of fun to have a holiday as an excuse to enjoy a few (maybe more) Guinness' at the bar. I'm now into it full force. I have my Flogging Molly tee and my green feather boa all ready to go for tomorrow morning. Needless to say, I don't see a run happening tomorrow.
Training is going OK. I ran another 8 miler on Sunday, but it was hell! The wind was whipping me like crazy, which made it so hard. Plus, I had a side-cramp the entire way. I still made it, though. Today I did a 5 mile treadmill run to relieve some of the pain that I've been feeling in my knees from running outside on the pavement.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! Anyone doing anything special tomorrow??
