Reminder you guys that Paddy’s 5K is Sunday, October 18th. One of my favorite West Newton traditions. Everyone in the neighborhood (possibly Eastern Mass) runs by me while I deal with my kids. Then I make up some kind of excuse afterwards on why my time sucked. Tight hammy. Guy dressed as hot dog was distracting me. Allergies.
Field races for little guys start around 9:30am at W. Newton Playground. There’s bouncey houses, face painting, snacks for the kids afterwards. Then the 1k for ages 14 and under at 10am. Big kids race starts at 11:30am. I’ll be in the back of the starting corral. The way back.
After the race, there’s great food, irish music, raffles and awards. Last year I won the guy least likely to win/finish award. Did I mention there’s a beer garden? Um – yeah there is.
See you there!
