Amanda Wagner's thoughts:

This was my first time running the Shamrock Shuffle and I had a great time. :) The expo was small, but had some good swag and it was easy to find my race bib, shirt, etc. On race morning it was easy to get into the park and my corral-much easier than it was at the Chicago marathon. I got to the park 45 min early, warmed up, checked my gear, and then made my way to corral A for the race. I hadn't been running much going into this race (about 15 mi/week) and just recovering form an injury, so i went in ready to have fun. The course was similar to the Chicago marathon, flat and fast. There were a few aid stations, but with the short race and cool weather, I did not need the fluids. It was well marked and there was carpet on the slippery bridge, which was nice. I did much better than expected with my lack of training and the energy on the course was contagious. It was a great kickoff to the 2019 racing season! Post race i got my medal and there were plenty of snacks from Mariano's and beers for all. I definitely want to run the Shuffle again in 2020!
