St. Patricks Day Dash

Today was the Seattle St. Patrick's Day Dash and it was raining as usual. The photo on the right was waiting  to reach the start line. I did take any other photos because it was raining so hard.

Now it wouldn't be so bad except that half the run is up hill.  I am happy to report that I set a PRd  for this race with 45:33. Not a speed demon, but I am happy with my results and improving my time by almost 2.5 minutes.

My Nike+ said the total distance was 3.96 miles.  The splits from the Nike+ are of course interesting, but I feel they are really not accurate because the last 1.96 miles were down hill.

Past results for this run:
2010 - 47:57
2009 - 56:44
2008 - Not timed
