Hope everyone had a great race this morning! I was so glad the hail waited until after the race was done before it started falling!

OK so weather.com is showing a 30% chance of 'something liquid' between the hours of 7:00 and 12:00. Ironically the tempter graft looks similar to the elevation graft of the race.

It will be cold dress warm! Any one ever run in a snow suit before?

I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for all of us on Sunday morning. Somehow snow would almost be better than rain LOL May the weather gods have mercy on us just for that morning.

Ha! KATU said this morning snow for the Shamrock run, but you know our weather reports. Do they know what they're talking about?

According to NOAA, the weather report for Sunday is:
Sunday: A chance of rain showers. Snow level 700 feet. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 45. Light south wind. Chance of precipitation is 50%.

According to other weather stations - definite rain/snow mix.

Dress warmly. I see thermals in my future!

@Kaishaku Fox, I think that's a great idea! It's always good when you can get an eye for/feel for the course.

We drove part of the Rock'n'Roll Half course last weekend. Tomorrow is my off-Friday, so if I can get out of the house early enough, I may walk/run miles 3-6 to get a feel for them. It's the hill of Hawthorne Ave.

WooHoo! Thanks again NWCountryDancer and HotRodSandy (who offered her team for sign-ups as well on the other thread) for open your teams and this opportunity to us!

I'll be volunteering the Friday before, at the fitness expo, so maybe I'll see some of you then. I'll be out on the course that Sunday, but I have no idea where yet.

Just a reminder that the deadline to sign up with a team and get the $3 discount is ending soon. Deadline to sign up for the team option is Tuesday, February 14, 11:59pm.

I have team 3010 and would love for anyone to join me. I am doing the walk, but I also have people signed up to do the run(s).

If you have already signed up as an individual but want to be transferred to my team, private message me your name you signed up under and I will get it transferred over. Unfortunately you will not get the $3 discount.

Any and all races almost ALWAYS need volunteers. Since we have two different teams available for people to participate with, I myself will be signing up to volunteer for the race. I'll let you know more about that when I receive more information.

Yep! NWCountryDancer has the established team and we can join hers for the discount.

From NWCountryDancer:
Yes, same thing. I did it last year and enough to forma team. People can choose to walk or run. Doesn't matter what event. All the shirts (and timing chips) come to me and I will have to distribute them. I think they came a few days before the race, so we can figure things out.
Here is info on signing up:

012 Shamrock Run – Portland
REGISTER ONLINE (beginning on November 1) at https://www.signmeup.com/site/online-event
-registration/78276

We are Team 3010.

Shamrock has sold out the past two years and will likely do so again for 2012. A small transaction fee is assessed when registering online.

How to Register Online:
1. Go to: Who are you registering? And choose “Yourself”
2. Select: Team Option - 15 or more $29.00
3. If registering a child, choose “Someone else” and Child (12 & under) PART OF TEAM $15.00
4. Select “yes” or “no” for wheelchair participant
5. Check box “I understand and agree to the waiver and release”
6. Click on “continue”
7. Fill out all your information
8. Under “Team Registration Number” type in 3010.
9. Choose your long sleeve shirt size
10. Choose “Event you are Participating in”. We do not all have to be in the same event to register as a team.
11. Click Proceed. Cost is about $30.38

Online team registrations close February 14!

Thanks so much to her for opening her team to us. Yes, if you register with the team, she will receive your shirts and tags, and we'll need to coordinate handing off the goodies prior to the race.

Whew!

I may have had a small brainfreeze when I posted this. I'm checking with NWCountryDancer, who mentioned she has a team for the Shamrock Stride. If it's part of the Shamrock run overall, we may already have our team!

Hang on for details.....

Hey everyone!

HotRodSandy had a fabulous idea and I thought I'd toss the idea out to everyone here.

The Shamrock Run is scheduled for March 18.
www.shamrockrunportland.com

If we form a group (4-14 people) or a team (15+ people) it means a lower cost for registering for the run. It also means having a tribe/crew/pack of people to run with, hopefully, if we can coordinate meeting up together! The differences between a group and a team are listed below. Also, you can register your husband/wife/brother/friend/cousin/neighbo
r/whoever on the group/team as well - they don't HAVE to be a part of SparkPeople.

Would any of you be interested in doing this? I had planned on volunteering for the run this year rather than running it, but if we have enough people interested in forming a group or team and no one else is willing to be the /leader/captain, I'll do it.

Wanna?
emoticon emoticon

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A GROUP AND A TEAM
Groups have 4 to 14 members. The entry fee is $31 per person. Group members must pick up their bib number and T-shirt at The Oregon Convention Center on Friday, March 16 or Saturday, March 17, or on race morning at Waterfront Park. Bibs and T-shirts for Group members are NOT shipped to the Group leader. But, Group members can pick up bibs and T-shirts for other Group members on Friday, March 16 through March 18.

Teams must have 15 or more adult members. The entry fee is $29 per person. Children age 12 and younger can be members of a Team if the Team has at least 15 members who are 13 or older. Members of a Team do NOT pick up their bib numbers or T-shirts at The Oregon Convention Center or at Waterfront Park. Bib numbers, T-shirts and Timing Chips for Team members are SHIPPED to the Team Captain to arrive no later than March 10.
