The Running Realtor: WPLR - ShamRock & Roll 5k - 2009

A blend of ramblings about Real Estate & Running around New Haven County and the Connecticut Shoreline

WPLR - ShamRock & Roll 5k - 2009

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.

Toad's Place - New HavenAnother 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.

Dan with the amount of snow we got today and most likely will still get some more, you may have to do that run in Cross Country Ski's .......... LOL

WPLR ShamRock & Roll Runners - 2008George... You never know what you'll run into on the course!  Last year I had to manuver pretty quick so I wouldn't be following these guys!  LOL

Dan, that's only a few days away.  I hope the snow doesn't get in the way.  Did you really snap that funny picture?

Maggie... Yesterday's foot of fresh snow won't really have any impact on the event.  Streets are pretty clear already.  And Yes that photo was taken at last year's race, as a blogger you know the camera is always close!
