And they're off!

And they’re off!

Yesterday was the Tipp Hill Shamrock Run (4 miles). Watch my video recap below:

This year, the race had more than 3,500 finishers.

The race has become a big event in the area and many say it unofficially marks the beginning of Spring. Apparently, everyone got the message except for Mother Nature.


As I said above, the race runs through the Tipp Hill neighborhood of Syracuse (hence the name of the race).

Aside from the Corporate Challenge, I believe the Shamrock Run is the biggest race in metro-Syracuse.


The youngest finishers this year were Liam Goodwin/George Lacombe (both 9) and Andrea Vigliotti (10). The oldest finishers were Chuck Schmutz/Robert Carafice (both 70) and Catherine McAndrew (80).


The winning times were 20:19 (Sam Morse) and 25:00 (Laura Kline).


Post-Race Thoughts

I was about a minute slower at the Shamrock Run than I would have liked. My legs were pretty shot – perhaps from the half marathon thirteen days earlier. Regardless, it was a good race and I think it will help me going forward. I had a fun time and I was happy to help represent the Strong Hearts Run Club.

    I was about a minute slower than I would’ve liked too, haha. Nice job though – definitely not the easiest course (I actually hate the steep downhills more than I hate the gradual ups!)
