Well even if you aren’t Irish, St. Patrick’s Day is fun to celebrate. Our way of celebrating this year was running the Quintiles Wrightsville Beach 1/2 Marathon today with our dad. This is the first race that we have all run together, so it was lots of fun! The weather was perfect, and despite waking up at 4:30 am for the 6:40 am start time, we had a blast! We wore St. Patrick’s themed tutus (or as we later decided they looked more like Tinker Bell skirts) and got several compliments on them from bystanders.
We were very happy with our times, Ryanne and I both set Personal Records and came in the top 10% for the women! Our dad left us in the dust and ended up getting 3rd place in his age group!
The best thing about the end of the race was that they had Natty Greene’s beer at the finish line and our medals also served as beer bottle openers 🙂
Our husbands and mom also came to watch to watch and brought our dogs. Arlie was prepared! And just in case you ever find yourself in need of a DIY St. Patrick’s tutu…
I just hot glued tulle and glittery ribbon to another ribbon. I got all of the materials at A.C. Moore. Have a great week!
