Shamrock Half Marathon.

Hello Team Veg :) Now that CIM is over, it's time to start thinking about our next focus race, Shamrock Half Marathon. Come join us for this classic event on March 17th! This is probably the most popular Half Marathon Held in Sacramento and will likely sell out sometime in January! It is over 50% full now so make sure to sign up soon if you are planning on running it. We would love to have you all out there supporting our team and helping bring awareness about the Plant Based Diet to our community, with us!! We have a few new members now and many that did not participate in the CIM, so if you are interested in running this and would like to represent Team Veg, then please specifiy on here or email me, so we can get you a shirt. Shirt selection and sizes are limited so let me know what you want Asap, so I can order more with plenty of time if need be. Our shirt's are Awesome by the way! They say, 'Team Veg Running, Powered by Plants' on the front, and all new shipments will say, 'Plant Powered Athlete' on the back. I will start training meetups in January, to allow everyone who participated in CIM plenty of time to recover. We will be doing easy runs, long runs and tempo runs mostly, with some interval and speed work thrown in from time to time. I hope to have as many of you as possible out there with me, running for a reason and mission! Let's run for something bigger then ourselves and make a possitive difference in this world!

THE FIRST WAVE STARTS AT 7:45AM, HOWEVER, WE SHOULD ALL GET THERE EARLY TO HAVE PLENTY OF TIME TO PARK AND PREPARE. DEPENDING ON YOUR START TIME, YOU WILL WANT TO START WARMING ACCORDINGLY, UNLESS YOU ARE NOT GOING TO WARM UP. FOR THE FIRST START WAVE, WARM UP SHOULD START BETWEEN 6:45 AND 7AM. LET'S MEET AROUND THE START AREA AT 7 FOR ANYONE WANTING TO WARM UP WITH ME FOR THE FIRST START TIME.

SEVERAL OF OUR NEWER MEMBERS DO NOT HAVE A TEAM SHIRT YET. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU HAVE ONE FOR THIS RACE IF YOU PLAN ON SUPPORTING OUR TEAM! THIS IS OUR FEATURED RACE FOR THE SEASON, WHERE WE WILL REALLY HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE AN IMPACT IN OUR COMMUNITY. LIKE I MENTIONED BEFORE, EVERYONE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. IF YOU JUST SHOW UP WEARING THE ORGANIZER SHIRT, YOU WILL NOT STAND OUT AND GET NOTICED. BY WEARING OUR TEAM VEG SHIRT WE CAN HELP BRING AWARENESS ABOUT THE PLANT BASED DIET AND SHOW OTHERS WHAT WE ARE MADE OF!

PLEASE CONTACT ME SO I CAN GET A SHIRT TO YOU THIS WEEK, IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ONE. I WILL ALSO BRING THEM ON RACE DAY FOR LAST MINUTE PICKUP. IF MONEY IS AN ISSUE, WE CAN WORK SOMETHING OUT. TO CONTACT ME THIS WEEK OR ON RACE MORNING, YOU CAN CALL OR TEXT ME [masked].

THANK YOU ALL FOR BEING APART OF OUR TEAM AND HELPING OUR VISION TAKE FLIGHT :)

      Steve, Unfortunately that is the same day as the Veggie Chase. It's too bad that it was scheduled on the same day, otherwise I would probably do it.

    This was a wonderull race. Looking forward to the next race. By the way CIM early registration is encouraged if possible, because the rate just went up by $10 this week. Something to think about!!

      Yes William! This was an awesome race! I did already sign up for CIM. I am going to put it up as a meetup in the next month or so. Can't wait to give it another shot :)

    Where should we meet Jed?

    March 10, 2013

    • Jedidiah S.

      Hi, ok that should work. Let's confirm for sure the day of. There isn't an xs but I think you will be just fine with the Small because they are tight and fit a little extra small. They cost $24. My # is 730-8962 if you want to call me to confirm arrangments. Thanks :)

    • Jedidiah S.

      I think it would be best if we could meet earlier because I have dinner plans and need time to prepare. I can meet at 3pm at the latest. I can also come to where you are if you aren't in the area. Let me know, thanks

    Just joined, also in Meetups for FOK, Vegan, Sac. Vegetarian Society. Jed, or ? = I'd be proud to purchase & wear the shirt you've described = 'Plant Powered Athlete' on the back. Will appreciate your reply, and Thanx for organizing!

    • Jedidiah S.

      Hello Dwight! Great! Thanks for joining our team! It is an honor to be the organizer to such a wonderful cause and amazing group of people. Unfortunately at this time we do not have Any men's shirts available with the plant powered athlete on the back, however, I do have some of the original order left with our logo on the front but nothing on the back. I can sell you one of those at a cheeper price if you are interested. Same quality shirts. We have cotton and Running Tech style. Otherwise, I will put you down for a future order. Thanks for your interested! Every person out there representing our team makes a difference!

    I would love to train for a half marathon but I can't pay that much for registration, not in my budget, maybe i can just support you guys while you run. Why do they charge so much to register?

    December 14, 2012

    • Jedidiah S.

      Elana, that price is typical for a half marathon. The higher up in distance you go, the more they charge. It would be great if you want to be out there with a shirt, supporting us though :)

    This is a fun run. Last March's Shamrock'n was my first organized run and I LOVED it. Got me into the whole marathon thing and I'll be glad to participate in 2013 and, it's on St. Pat's day to boot! How great is that?
