You weren't carrying 279 lbs this year...that's what I was calling "lighter" running. I can just envision one trying to run "lighter"...lol.

The Shamrock run is over and I did finish...running all the way. However at a slower pace than I am used to. I know that I should have pulled out and not run and should have, instead, walked. The knee feels pretty good this morning, I expected much worse. I have the Race for the Roses next month that I may have to pull out if the knee does not get better.
By the way...I found there is no way to run "lighter". emoticon

Chuck, let us know how running "lighter" yet with an injury goes this year. (Guess you know what your doing...running on a injury.) Lucky shamrock to you...for good health.

My exercise friend/neighbor is running in the Shamrock Run. I won't be there but I am going to be putting my son-in-law in the Warrior Run (his b-day present :-)).

He does Iron Mans and tri-ath's I thought the WR would be fun and he said "yes". I decided that maybe getting muddy and all that isn't really what I WANT to do as I thought I did last year. But I will enjoy watching someone close to me do so. (Then I'll be even one year older next year...hmmm...maybe I should "just do it"...be a Warrior...lol)

I ran Hood to Coast in 2009, since then I've been doing my damnedest to become a "runner". I have to say my body is not equipt for it with 2 bad knees and my achilles tenden constantly flaring up, but I loved the drive and push it took to make it through my Hood to Coast run and have been striving to get back into it via 5k and 10k. Was wondering where you find out about all the various runs and relays taking place in Oregon?

Hey KATARRA....it will be a great run!! I missed the Champoeg, my friends told me they kicked some booty over there...hee, I usually only run 5K's because of my sweet, wonderful, un-compliant right knee emoticon ...but I even ran the Mt. Angel 10K this last year, so it just goes to show ...'willing' something so is very possible indeed! (my body really will not claim to be a 'runner', but my soul loves the idea! lol!)

Here's to all of us at the Shamrock, it will be good I know! Amy, hope you can make the fitness walk too!

Thanks Chuck! I plan to start the couch to 5k running program again soon. I made it all the way to week 7 about a year ago, then had a hip injury that required total rest for several months. It was feeling much better so I decided to give it a try. It felt great during the 5k but I had some pain for a few days after. I'm excited to give it a try again.

I did my very first 5k two weeks ago. It was the Resolution Run at Champoeg Park. It was a lot of fun. I was able to run (slowly) the first 1 1/2 miles then walk a mile and finished strong for the last 1/2 mile. Not bad considering I did no training for it and have never jogged more than a half mile at once in my life.

Understandable since I was thinking of doing the Warrior Dash as well and we discussed it on another thread. Maybe I'll see you at both events. emoticon

Sorry about that I guess I had the Warrior Dash on my brain. I have signed up for the Shamrock Run as well. It will be my 2nd attempt at a 5K and huge attendance compared to my 300+ participants at my first one in Tigard Aug. last year. I was only in my week 5 of training and about 30 lbs. heavier then.
Good luck with your race.

Chuck- the Shamrock Run is the one that I've signed up for and is in March. That's why I'm a little worried, because it's only a month away! I will stay positive and keep to my training. emoticon

I am also signed up and looking forward to it. I am doing the couch to 5K training program to help me prepare. this is my first 5K and I am a little worried that I "run" to slowly and I may have to walk a couple of times, but I keep training and hope that as race comes closer that my body keeps up. emoticon

I am all signed up and ready to go. Training is work-in-progress. This will be my 2nd 5K. I did one last Aug., a small turnout of about 300+ people. This will be my 1st big one.
