Race #3-Irish 5K

Three down, twenty-seven more to go!

Yesterday morning I was finally able to complete race number 3. It was the Irish 5K in Pawtucket, RI; the first in the Tour de Patrick series. The race started at 11AM and my parents and I got there around 10:40. It was nice not having to wait too long outside since it was kind of chilly. In the sun the 25ish degrees didn’t feel so bad, but the wind hurt a little bit.

The race had about 700 people running and the course is a great one. There’s a hill at the beginning and it flattens out for the remainder. It was a slower run for me, but I felt consistent in my pace for the entire 5K. I wasn’t dying by the end, so I know I didn’t push myself all that much. With the frigid weather, I didn’t want to risk it. Smile

Organizing the Jogging Concierge

Over the weekend, I have been thinking of ways to make my blog more effective and get myself more involved as well. I have so much I want to write about, but without any set schedule or set pattern of posting, everything kind of falls to the wayside, and I go weeks without writing. But I am determined to come up with a schedule of writing on Sunday through Friday. Sunday will be a race recap day, and between Monday and Friday I’ll write about restaurant reviews, product reviews, recipes, traveling and other fun topics. I’m going to go through my pictures and find some pictures that I haven’t posted yet. I hope it helps me get back in to the blogging groove!

Do you post on a set schedule?

I don’t always have something to say, so if I don’t, I don’t force it by posting junk. Sometimes this means maybe only 1 or 2 posts per week. I always do my Friday update posts though, so there’s a guarantee it’ll be at least one. By having that theme on Fridays, it helps me know what I need to be writing.

Great job at the Irish 5K. And good luck next weekend with the double to finish out the Tour de Patrick. I hope we have good weather in Providence on Saturday!
