St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Run!

St. Patrick's DayWe are so excited for Oregon’s St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Run!  On Sunday March 16th, you can watch the runners participate in 5K, 8K, or 15K events all to benefit Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.  The run takes place at Waterfront Park in Downtown Portland.  

An after party will be held at Paddy’s Bar and Grill where Patrick Lamb will be performing; so once you’ve had your run, go and have your Guinness! 

If you’ve secured yourself a place to run this year, here are a few safety tips to keep in mind so that your race does goes as smoothly as possible.

Start slow; you don’t want to burn through everything you’ve got in the first few minutes of the run.  Remember that it’s only a race with yourself and the best way to win is to finish.

Make sure you hydrate adequately before and after the race.  The worst thing for your recovery would be not enough water in your system; this is especially true if you plan on a pint of celebratory Guinness afterwards!
