Ask & You Shall Receive

So, the same day that I wrote about the races I am not running in 2011, I came home to find a card in the mail advertising this:
St. Paddy's 5K Run/Walk, NEW 8K Run & Leprechaun Leap

Let's see...
  • Decent race distance for early in the year? Check.
  • Benefiting the Irish-American Heritage Center, and I am Irish-American (under all the German)? Check.
  • On a free weekend? Check.
  • After-race party at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum (very cool place)? Check.
  • Free Guiness to those over 21? Check.
  • Opportunity to rase funds for the Special Olympics, an organization I already support? Check, check, and check.
My registration fee has been sent in and my fundraising page has been set up. Booyah!
