Hurry scurry for Shamrock Shuffle

Photo grabbed from Garmin at

I might even be too late in posting this, but I received an e-mail that prompted me to hop online and share the news: Shamrock Shuffle is filling up. If you planned on participating in this unofficial start to the 2009 running season and haven't registered already, HURRY! This race closes fast once that e-mail goes out. And I know because I ignored its urging last January and just barely missed grabbing a spot--the press release announcing the registration closing hadn't been sent when I went to register, but I saw the red warning label telling me I couldn't proceed further. I warned of it when I announced signing up for the Shamrock Shuffle and hope that no one misses out on the fun and has a race calendar thrown out of whack.

And while you're thinking running in Chicago, the Bank of America Chicago Marathon registration opens on February 1. The race is in October so there's plenty of training time, but this race closes fast and closes earlier every year. I used to register for it in July and be fine, now if I'm not committed by April, I'm SOL. More to come on the marathon though. Posted by Kate
