First Race of the Year

So I am all signed up for my first race of 2011…The Shamrock Shuffle on April 10th.  In the past, I have shied away from this race.  It is usually in mid-march and marked with a snowy miserable day.  Although I do love to run, I am mostly a fair-weather runner.  With the race moved to April, I thought I’d recruit some friends and give the 8k a try.  A coworker of mine is on board and suggested setting a pace goal.  We agreed on 8 minute miles, which means our goal is to finish in 40 minutes.  This will definitely be a challenge, but one I am looking forward to.  It will also encourage me to get out and run on more of those sunny winter days (or hit the treadmill on the snowy ones).

If you want to join us, sign up today!  Or just meet us for breakfast afterwards!

What’s your first race of the year?

  1. I wanted to sign up for this race but I have a wedding shower to attend that morning and the timing didn’t work out. You’re going to be running near our place! I’ll try to come out and watch!
