I wore my garmin and my unofficial time was 48:02 with an average pace per mile of 9:36! I'm very happy with that considering I was dying from the weather! The last mile I just repeated to myself "Just keep running, just keep running!" You have to do what you have to do!! lol
My cousin Nick did great too. His time last year was 58:29 and his unofficial time this year was around 57:00. Great job Nick!
Official results to come later! They are not posted right now, or there are too many people trying to get on the site because it's just crashing.
But it's a gorgeous day in Chicago. I wish it was going to last but it's not. It's about 80 degrees and sunny. Later in the week it will be 50's and rainy. Oh well. I'll enjoy it while I can. Here are a few pictures from the Shamrock Shuffle and of my wonderful convertible (how I will miss it when I get a new one soon!).
