Shamrock 15k

It is official, the 2009 race season is here. March always mark the end of winter and the running of the Shamrock. And every year I get my ass kicked on this course. However, I have to admit, this year not so much! My Boston training looks like it may be starting pay off.

Last year, we were not sure if the race was going to happen due to a snow storm the night before. This was a complete change from last year. This year was my kind of weather...cold and rainy. However, it could have been a bit less rainy. During the early miles of the race, it really came down.

My final stats for the day was a time of 1:05 (5 minutes off my PR!) 15th overall and 2nd in my age group. All in all, a pretty good day. Next up...good question. Need one more race or so before I leave for Beantown. Hmmm....
