Your time is amazing! And of course, I LOVE your outfit! One of these races I'm going to wear a sparkle skirt. I'm thinking my half in October. When I do, I hope I get a burst of energy like yours!

Super cute costume!! I really wanted to do a St Pattys 5k but the race schedule is really limited where I live now. Looking forward to my upcoming move to FL for that reason alone!! :D
