Leprechaun 5-Miler

Yesterday was the first day of spring. Yay, finally! I celebrated by participating in the Leprechaun 5-miler with my old roomie and fellow blogger, Emily, and her bf. It was a bit windy along the water but still fairly warm, compared to today’s snow we are experiencing (as I type) in Connecticut…

It was great to get together, exercise and enjoy the sunshine, not to mention support the Exchange Club’s national mission, Child Abuse Prevention and programs of service, in which all race proceeds went to.

The relatively flat course started at the Madison Surf Club and winded alongside the Long Island Sound on Middle Beach Road. Our goal was to run 9 minute splits, yet we ended in roughly (we’ll have to check our official time online once they are posted…) 42:20! Fine with that!

All in all, the 5 mile race was a great way to celebrate St. Patty’s Day weekend and the first day of spring! Let’s just hope that the weather starts acting like it is supposed to. Don’t you like our green? Special shout out and thanks for those who suggested some great jams for my run! Couldn’t have done it without ya! How are you celebrating spring and the warmer weather?

Sprinkled with Love,
Lauren
