Happy St. Patrick's Day

Green is SO my favorite color, so a holiday that requires you wear it is like a holiday after my own heart.

Then again, a holiday revolving around all things green isn't quite as exciting as holidays where you exchange gifts... BUT! I did get to celebrate a bit at a little party on Saturday night hosted by the lovely Amy. I also got to meet her friend and blogging pal April!

I wasn't feeling well, so I was happy to just sit around and catch up with friends. Not surprisingly, most of the people attending the party were local runners.

I had a photo snapped of the three people I run most with around here whether it's training or racing.

It's fun to see pictures like this and say to myself, "hey, those are some pretty awesome people and I'm happy they're in my life!"

Running is definitely a big part of my life for numerous reasons, but the biggest reason undoubtedly revolves around the social aspects. I've made some really great friends through running, and I'm hopeful that there will be more new friends in the future.

I like these kids. They're fun to run with on Saturday morning and then have a good time with on Saturday night.

I don't suppose St. Patrick's Day is typically one of those holidays that makes you feel all warm and mushy about the people in your life, but I can't help but look at this picture from this year's St. Patty's Day shin dig and smile about how I got to celebrate it with some pretty awesome friends that I've gained over the past year through running.

St. Patrick's Day always makes me feel warm and mushy... but I think that's probably from the irish car bombs. ;)

Thanks again for coming! And, yes.. we do have a great running community here and I'm thankful to have made great friends like you through it!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
