First 5-k of the year

I ran in the Get Green 5-Kilt Run yesterday with Jane and Carrie. It was the first 5k of the year for all of us. Fortunately it didn't start until 9:30 am, because it was a tad chilly early on. It did kind of warm up a little later in the day. That didn't stop us from having a green beer at 10:15 am though. Afterward they also turn the river green - which you can see in this news video.

I think Carrie ran a 32-minute 5k, and Jane and I did it in 34-something. I was pretty happy with that considering how out of shape I am. I was also happy to be able to run the entire thing, and not have to walk. It was pretty fun. (These pics are in reverse order, and I'm too lazy at the moment to rearrange).
