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.

How was your run this weekend? AWESOME!!
Have done a Ragnar Relay before? YES!!
Which one? I have done NorthWest Passage 2x. I am doing NWP again and also LV this year. ULTRA style!
