Last weekend I was a part of the largest run that Minnesota hosts every year, the Get Lucky. The Get Lucky run is a ST Patrick’s Day Run and it is a 7 K Run or a 7 7 7 Run (21 K). This is my third year being a part of this run.
For Saturday Snapshot this morning I thought I would give you a little recap of the run.
I ran the 7k with 11,000 other people in Minneapolis. In St Paul, another 20,000 were running the Triple 7k. CRAZY stuff.
The run has entertainment along the way. These girls were dancing Irish style at the start of the run…
These little boys were about half way through the run. There were also a couple of Irish bands along the way that played music for us as we went by.
There were signs along the way that marked what “K” we were at to
torture us let us know how far we had gone.
The route is the same every year and towards the end of the run we go over a bridge that is always an uphill battle. Literally.
Sweet victory was mine!
At the end of the run they had up signs for other runs they will be having in Minnesota this year. I am signed up for the Tiki run next that will be a night run in St Paul. SWEET!
One of the things I really enjoy about the Ortho Runs is the swag you get for doing them. Ortho does not give out yet another event t-shirt. They usually have cool hoodies or running gear.
SO that was the run. Today is a literary day. After a walk with a friend this morning, this afternoon I am attending a writing class and after that a book release party. I am looking forward to a good day!
