Shamrock Shuffle


Haight, Me and Reen along with my daughter and me in our volunteer shirts. The race shirts were white so I think we got the best ones (though those of us that ran got both!!). I couldnt PR because the race was sooooo crowded and I also had to retie my shoes!!! But I had lots of fun. I felt the strength my arms gave me from my weight training, and my legs also felt stronger. It's a cool course to do because it uses the same beginning and ending streets of the Chicago Marathon. That killer hill at the end was easier with only 4.5 miles behind me! Word on the street is that the Chicago Marathon will fill up by May this year instead of the usual July fill up. I still am weighing whether I'll do it again, but I guess I'll sign up just in case. So those of you looking to do my city's Marathon---get in there early!!!!

Ouch, I remember that hill at the end of Chicago! After 26 miles of FLAT it feels like a mountain!

The Shamrock Shuffle is great. Kudos to whoever decided to cut out those annoying 21 miles between the start and the finish...
