2009 Portland Shamrock Run - Done

The strong wind, steady rain, and temperatures in the 40s were enough to deter all but the few thousand least common-sense-endowed participants for today's Shamrock Run in downtown Portland. There was a 5k, an 8k, and a 15k, the latter of which I ran and finished in around 1:08:37, or a 7:22 minute/mile pace [official-ish]. This finish time was roughly a minute longer than my personal best, and I can live with that or, I suppose, die trying.

The course was, as always, hilly, and even on a cloudy day, lovely. It successfully fatigued me and I think I'm going to lie down now.
