despite some competition from the nyc half marathon, there was a great turnout for the taconic road runner's st. patrick's day races this morning. i was a course marshal for the 2 miler and then ran the 10k race. both races had great turnouts, despite the chilly start to the day. runners had the option of getting a shirt or a beer glass (in the past we normally just gave beer glasses). why beer glasses for a st. patrick's day race? because they come in handy for the post-race captain lawrence on tap for rehydration :D
i had a hard time running 8 minute miles for the 10k. but i did manage to finish it in under 50 minutes (49:52, 8:03 pace). all in all, i was more than happy with that.
here are the race results for the 2 miler.
here are the race results for the 10k.
here are the rest of my photos posted on facebook.
