I'm Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover...


There's just something about St. Patrick's Day that says "Spring!" Fourteen races on the St. Paddy's weekend - if you can't find a race this weekend, you're really not trying.

The Henry's Dash in Seattle is probably my most-run race ever (with the Haggen to Haggen in Bellingham a close second). I've run the Dash probably 10-12 times. That's a great course in a great city and the race just has a great, festive atmosphere. You can't go wrong with the Dash.

But this year, I'm trying a new race: the Shamrock Run in Portland. I wasn't sure what race I wanted to do until I found out that the Shamrock Run 15k was giving away finisher's medals that can be used as a bottle opener! Score!

Let's race!
