The Dublin half was my first Rock 'n' Roll series and I could not have chosen a better one to do! It was the most fun I've ever had running a race. Hard to believe because I was so nervous prior to the race since it was my first time not having a running buddy! (I did miss having you there Dina!) The course was a little challenging with some hills but the views were so gorgeous I was easily distracted. I felt pretty strong through it all and was able to finish under 2 hours, which was my goal. As usual, Andy & Addie cheered for me throughout which gave me bursts of energy when I saw them along the course. Best cheerleaders ever!
Once the race was over, our real vacation began. The stress was off the both of us and we enjoyed loads of beer & chips! Our 8 days in Ireland flew by fast. After a week we are usually ready to return home, but this time it was different. We were super sad to leave. Hands down one of the best trips we've taken and our favorite country!
Here are pics from our trip! Enjoy.
