Running and Corned Beef and Cabbage

st patty

I woke up early to watch the coverage of the Los Angeles Marathon this morning on television.  My sister and several of my friends ran the race this year, and I couldn’t be more proud of what they accomplished by completing the 26.2-mile race!  There was a high school student who completed the marathon in less than three hours.  What an amazing accomplishment for such a young man, and I have a feeling that many colleges will be calling him soon!

Although a part of me enjoyed being cozy at home and not putting myself on a self-inflicting torture, a part of me really missed being a part of the event.  I never thought I’ll say this, but I actually missed running!  My goal is to run a half marathon in 2014 and hopefully participate in the LA Marathon again in 2015.

Congratulations to everyone who completed the marathon today, and Happy St. Patrick’s Day! My husband and I enjoyed the traditional corned beef and cabbage for dinner!
