Shamrock’n since 2012
I run for fitness. I am not one who can honestly say that “I love to run,” but it has such great health benefits. I really enjoy an approach to running that involves intervals of running and walking.
I enjoy the Shamrock’n half marathon because it’s a “fun” race that’s enjoyed by thousands of participants. It remains a significant Sacramento community event that provides great support for a number of organizations that help sponsor it. The Shamrock’n is the perfect race to begin a habit of running community races. It has a place for everyone in a fun, healthy, unthreatening environment. You will never feel alone running this race. You run or walk with people of all levels of fitness with a shared goal of crossing the finish line feeling a great sense of accomplishment.
Sure there are many “serious” runners who approach this race competitively, but for the majority of people, it’s a time to engage in a healthy event with their friends, family and co-workers.
Preparation for this race as a participant provides an opportunity to develop new friendships and interact with individuals who lend their experience and support to boost confidence. When you train and run with Fleet Feet, you are not running alone. They are there with you every step of the way.
I hope to see you at the 2016 Shamrock’n!
