Shamrock’n since 2014


Training with Fleet Feet Sacramento is one of the best decisions I have ever made. In a short time span, Fleet Feet took me from barely completing a 1-mile run due to severe shin splits to running my first and favorite half marathon—the Shamrock’n half marathon. The Fleet Feet instructors knew all the stretches and exercises to correct my issues.

Shamrock’n is my favorite half marathon for a few reasons. First off, it is a well-organized race. From the sign up process, throughout the training sessions, and even when you cross the finish line, Fleet Feet is there to help you reach your goal. In fact, Fleet Feet has a special waiting area WITH restrooms just for people who trained with Fleet Feet. It may not sound like a perk; however, when you have 10,000+ runners, having access to a restroom is a priority. As for the actual course, it is flat. Try running a half marathon in San Francisco or Oakland—let me know how those hills feel. And last but not least, there are live bands throughout the course and at the end!

I am not an expert runner. I am just a middle age guy who wanted to improve my overall fitness. I had doubts at first. But the Fleet Feet instructors really helped me feel the joy of running.

I hope to see you at the 2016 Shamrock’n!
