captain lawrence microbrew


served up nice and cold from growlers!

what better time than st. patrick's day to mention how great it was to find captain lawrence microbrew at the post-race festivities yesterday! not only was this the second year in a row that it was supplied for the taconic road runners st. patrick's day races, but captain lawrence beer was also on tap at the post-race festivities for bedford "where the pavement ends" 5 miler last october! what made drinking this beer even more fun was just having read a great review of the brewery in wednesday's issue of the journal news.


anyway, st. patrick's day and beer aside, i did get in some running today. when i got home from work i went out and ran 6 miles, in 46:55, a 7:49 pace, before dinner. my legs felt stiff and pretty tired, no doubt it was the delayed soreness from wurtsboro. but at the end of the run i was glad that i kept the pace under 8 minutes and got in the miles.

after dinner i went back out for an easy 4 miles, in 32:21, an 8:05 pace. the extra miles brought the total up to 10 miles for the day. this was the highest mileage monday in well over a month. a great start to the week.

no green beer today - but plenty of water and good mileage made up for it!

Awesome shot of the "beer guy". Nice speedy 6-miles. I may be in for the 3-miler on Sunday...I'll let you know for sure in a day or two. I just have to find out what time I need to be in Jersey for Easter diner.

Only the best races have beer at aid stations and the finish.

you know...if they are going to serve booze, they should move these races to after Easter!

Is it me or does the beer guy kind of look like Brad Pitt in that photo? I'm going to have to start coming to some of your races...

Can I use a few of your photos from the St Pats races for the next TRRC newsletter?
