1.  The Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle is this Sunday.  I’ve ran this race six times since 2006.  My best time is 52:18 in 2010 so my goal this year is to PR.

I am not cool about my start time.  The actual race starts at 6:30 am.  Of course I am not a speedy runner so my start time is at 8:55, Wave 2.  Boo.  Funny how those in Wave 1 and maybe 2 will be done by the time I start to run.

2. I like Picky Bars.  Well, what’s not to like?  They’re tasty and have lots of good stuff for us.  They’re “real food balanced for sports”.  Just this past weekend I became a member of the Picky Club and I got my first shipment yesterday.  As a club member I get 18 bars for $37, free shipping, samples of new flavors, a free shirt, and other fun club gifts.

3.  I love a good sale.  I bought two pairs of Brooks PureFlows 2 for $50 each from Running Warehouse.  They still have more pairs available so I think I will purchase a few more or all of them.  I love running in those shoes and I don’t think I’ve ever paid $50 for a pair of Brooks shoes.

  1. Wave 1 starts at 8:30, not 6:30, so you’re not too far behind. And I’m in corral F too! Last year I started at the end of Wave 3, my husband was in corral B and did finish before I even started. No big deal, he was able to see me finish that way. Anyway, hope you have a great race Sunday! 🙂
