I ran the Shamrock 'n' Roll 5K last year and really enjoyed enjoyed it. The race was very well organized and was a great time. From competitive runners to families to pups, the field is so diverse and fun! As an added bonus, a number of my friends (and a few of their kids) were joining in on the fun!
The weather was pretty cruddy to be completely honest. We have had a week full of spring-like weather and temps in the 60s and 70s then the weekend rolled around and we were facing temps around 35 and rain (a drizzle to light steady rain)! UGH! We grabbed our ponchos and heatsheets and waited in the parking garage until just before race time. The luck of the Irish came through and the rain stopped just moments before the race!
