2009 Portland Shamrock Run

without comments

I finished my first race this last weekend. I did the Shamrock Run 8k. It was pouring rain, wind from every direction and crowded. It was fun but I am looking forward to doing a smaller and better weather race. I think I heard the estimate of 20,000 people attended this Shamrock run. So many people in my 8k that from gun time until when I crossed the start line was 3 minutes. Which meant that actually running took a while, it was a lot of slowing then passing then slowing behind someone and passing again. Next time, I’ll make sure I have a better position at the starting line.

Next up is the Bridge to Brews which I’ll either do the 8k or 10k for this.
