It’s Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day!

We had a great Flying Irish turnout at this year’s Glow in the Park 5K last Saturday.  And thanks to all of you who stopped by the FI waterstation to say Hi!  You all looked amazing!  A special shout out goes to Ryan and his crew for putting on such a fun event!

Even though last Saturday marked the official halfway to St. Patrick’s day, we thought we’d celebrate our favorite holiday with a Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day run this Thursday!  Wear your Irish garb, your kilt, your FI gear, whatever’s green, and get ready for the easiest theme run ever!  And what better place to celebrate this fine holiday but our old stomping grounds; O’Doherty’s!  This run will be 21 and over inside, so please bring your Id!  We’ll have the sign-in sheets available outside for all those younger who still want to run.  See you at 6:00 PM this Thursday at O’Doherty’s!

 Featured Brewery:  Lagunitas Brewing Company


September brings our newest beer sponsor and this month we’re happy to have Lagunitas providing after run hydration all month long!  You can check out a selection of their beer right after the run!  Fun fact; Lagunitas is the brewery that turned me onto IPA’s.  “Good people drink good beer.” – Hunter S.
