OCMD St. Patty’s Day 5K

Yesterday was the perfect day to run a 5K! The weather was beautiful, the race was on the boardwalk by the beach, and over 1,100 people came out for the event.

The St. Patty’s Day 5K, hosted by OC Tri Running, was held on the Boardwalk in Ocean City. Runners started in front of Shenanigans Irish Pub, ran down towards the inlet and around the pier, then ran down farther on the boardwalk before looping around and finishing the 3.1 miles in front of Shenanigans.

All ready with my St. Patty’s day gear!!

I thought my outfit was bright enough… and then I added these pink shoes!

I picked up my race packet before the race that morning. Runners started by 4th street on the Boardwalk, so I parked at the inlet, thinking that wouldn’t be far at all to walk. I parked and walked down to pick up my race number, but then had to walk back down to my car and get my life together (and by that I mean get my music, Garmin watch, leave my coat in the car since it was too windy when I first got there…) Then of course I had to walk back down to where the race was starting. Nothing like walking the 5K before you run it to warm up!

By the time the race started, the weather had warmed up considerably, the wind died down, and the sun came out. I was definitely glad I didn’t run with a jacket or a long sleeved shirt. And we’re off!

I was a little nervous to run yesterday because my shins have been bothering me a lot this week. I’ve never had shin splints before, but I guess I have them now! I thought since the race was just a 5K, I would be fine to run it anyways. They did hurt while I was running, but I wasn’t about to stop Smile I’ll just take a few days off now to let them heal. Although I feel like I just finished taking a running break from hurting my ankle! Oh runner problems…

It was a fun race though and I loved running along the boardwalk. So pretty!
