In the Real Estate Business here in New England March 1st is kind of the unofficial start of our Spring Market but as I backed out of my driveway this morning signs of spring were pretty well hidden. Winter has been hanging on this year and has dumped double the average annual snowfall on us.
Another sign of spring from a runner's viewpoint is the WPLR ShamRock & Roll 5k. Since 99.1 has been my station of choice dating back to the mid 70's it makes sense to participate in the event each year. Back in the day I'd typically hit Toad's Place in New Haven after eight on a Saturday night, now the only time I make an appearance is a little after eight on a Sunday morning in March.
Just over two years ago when I started blogging my results at the WPLR ShamRock & Roll 5k offered a perfect opportunity to share my running buddy's secret to speed improvement.
If you are looking for a fun run mark your calender for March 8th this year. The race starts and 9:00am and Toad's should have the beer flowing shortly thereafter.
