St. Patty’s Day Challenge LR:

14.25 mi – 9:25 pace

Weekly Miles (Run/ Walk/ Bike):

57.25 mi

Okay. So I bet some of you are wondering, “What the heck is her “St. Patty’s Day Challenge?” And others of you are all like, “I know EXACTLY what this is. Bam.”

Well, if you are friends with me on Instagram, you would know all about this challenge! For those of you poor souls whom are completely lost and whom are thinking, “What the heck is Instagram?” Let me explain.

Last night I posted a picture on to both my personal Instagram and my Running Small Instagram. I also later posted it to DailyMile. Another site I am in love with.

Here is the picture:


Pretty self explanatory. For every like, I would run .15 of a mile! I ended up having 95 “Likes” overall! Not that bad!

95 x .15 = 14.25miles

And looky there, I ran a tad over it!

The run was quite boring. I felt like I was having a heat stroke for most of the run, and then after mile 9 I had to stop and go to the bathroom, slowing down my time.

But other than that, it was pretty good!

After 13.5 miles, my dad and sister, Samantha (to go to her education blog, click HERE), drove by. Sam snapped some beautiful pictures…


Lookin’ fancy, dad.

That's my, "I'm smiling, but on the inside I'm dying" face.

Incase you didn’t notice, I am wearing some fancy schmancy new PRO Compression socks. My idol, (in a non-stalkerish way) Skinny Runner, gave them to me! She sent me a black pair and a bright pink pair, along with some “Team Skinny Runner” stickers! Sooo hanging them up in my dorm room next year.  

After I got home, my family asked me how far I ran and didn’t believe me when I plainly said “14.25 miles.” They were all like, “Continuously?” 

 I almost did my favorite yoga pose in the middle of the driveway, “Starfish with Asthma” (kidding.. no but seriously.) It kinda looks like this…

Now just pretend the starfish is breathing really, really hard.

That’s “Starfish with Asthma.” I suggest trying it sometime. Really relaxing.

I enjoyed a glass of chocolate milk…


… and took some after-run pictures!
