Shamrock preview + RAGNAR

24 Feb

I had a 90 minute run on the schedule. I had a late night and an early morning so I was pretty much dreading the 9 miler that was ahead of me. I thought I might die.

The sun was out! It was dry! Really what more could I ask for!! I decided that I would head downtown up Broadway and continue on Terwilliger. I was going to come back via the waterfront but decided just to make it an out and back. It was perfect because I am preparing for Portland’s Annual Shamrock 15K.

The course is flat, a lot of uphill, some downhill, and then ends on flat road.

The best thing about 3 weeks out from the race is: there are a ton of people running on Terwilliger. I am sure that it helped that it was dry and sunny! 🙂

I ended up having a great run. 9.45 mile run…check! I averaged 10:19’s which was perfect! This was my longest run post-IMAZ (besides Surf City–which was a run/walk). Another survival run!! YEAH!!

After my run I headed to the RaceCenter Expo to sign up for a few races and work the Ragnar booth.

I am a Ragnar Ambassador because I like to talk all things RAGNAR!!

Jaymi and I worked the 12-2 shift. Then Shelly and Mary took the last shift. We answered questions and talked Ragnar up. We gave lots of shirts and tats away. Had so much fun.
