After the race trainwreck (for me) that was MCTU, I’m back at it again this weekend.
I signed up for the Shamrock Shuffle a while ago as a casual way to end a long run on Sunday. And that’s still pretty much the plan. Who wouldn’t want to run the last 5 miles of a 15 with 40,000 of their closest friends?
I’m super stoked for the Shamrock Shuffle in downtown on Sunday though! It’s a huge race, I’ll get to see my awesome BibRave friends, and it’s a nice preview of the Chicago Marathon course. Did I mention I love St. Patrick’s Day??
Yes, I know it was last weekend.
Fun fact about this race for me. It will almost for sure be the first time I run an 8k and don’t PR. Yes, every other time I’ve run the distance, I’ve set a new personal best. Not so on Sunday, and I’m totally looking forward to that!
I also love St. Patty themed races. It was kind of sad to not be able to run the Leprechaun Chase again this year in Des Moines, but I’ll still get my green on this year.
Hopefully I’ll notch some better race photos at this one. The Leprechaun Chase photos were never kind to me. I mean, look at that side eye!
But really, I’m super jazzed about this. Can you tell?
Will I see any of you out on the streets of Chicago on Sunday??
