March Race #1

On Saturday, Susan and I ran the Leprechaun Scurry in Couer d'Alene, ID. It was 3 miles long, starting at North Idaho College and running on Lake Couer d'Alene (photo #1). It was a little chilly, but the great view helped distract you from the cold. We were pretty excited to try and improve our time from the 3 mile race we ran in the fall. And we did beat it.... by a LOT! In the fall we ran the 3 mile race in 28:49 and yesterday we ran it in 25:19! That is an improvement of 3:31. Needless to say, we were pretty happy. In my age group I got 7 out of 24. And for overall women, we got 18 and 19 out of 144! Susan was lucky enough to win a raffle price.... $15.00 gift card to a running store. We headed over there after the race and looked around and she bought a few things. We had a lot of fun! Our next race (5 mile) is in two weeks, so check back for the details.

I'm so proud of the two of you and the improvement you made in your time. We expect an improvement on the next race time as well.
