Shamrock Shuffle ~ Family Fun

   
One of my favorite things about my running journey is the addition of running with the kids. It is nice to have races to run with my husband and different races to run with the entire family. The Shamrock Shuffle was a great race to run with the kids.

We ventured up early to check out the course and the sights. The race began and ended by Plymouth Rock and went along the water. It gave us the opportunity to play tourist and meet up with friends!

  
The race had a good turnout and there was a lot of green!

  
We split up at the start according to our paces. I was running with our youngest. He was enthusiastic the first time we ran a 5k together and was less enthusiastic the second time. He really wanted to do this race so I was hopeful.  

He was a complete joy through the entire race. There was a running commentary the whole time and he was excited to pick out scenery shots along the way. He still doesn’t maintain a consistent pace so there is a lot of running and walking. I let him determine our pace and followed his lead. It worked out well!

  
Our oldest finished with his best time (26:01) and placed second in his age group! The entire day was a great success and we can’t wait for the next one!!

  1. It’s always good to have a goal race. I just ran one of my favorite races: the Dairy Dash! Awesome tech shirt, cute cow themed medal and post race ice cream. Having friends and family involved with running is the very best motivator. 😃
