|Kiss me, I'm Iowish.|
I'm Irish and my family has always made a huge deal about St. Patrick's Day. I go to my sister's every year because there is a huge parade (the only bi-state parade in America) and you can drink green beer right on the street. My sister and nephew ran the family 1 mile run, and I did the 5K on my own. It was pretty chilli out for being mid March. The course was a nice flat run downtown. The atmosphere was awesome with the crowd, Irish music, and seeing orange, white, and green flags flown everywhere.
I finished in just over 38 minutes....10 minutes faster than my January run.
The next day we soaked up the soreness and booze with some tasty corned beef and cabbage.
