Training Topics

Race Tips Review:  Make sure you know your goals and are fully prepared for the race. Here is all the important information you will need for your upcoming race!

Waiting for Race in the VIP Area

  • Location: The VIP area will be in the Legacy Club at Raley Field.
    • After entering the stadium, head towards the 3rd base side of the concourse. Almost near the end you will see a Fleet Feet tent and doors leading to the Legacy Club. There will be a volunteer checking in trainees as well as directional signage on the day of the race to make sure all of you get up there without a hitch.
  • Hydration: Bring your own bottle of water to sip on before the race.
  • Fueling: Consider breakfast time vs. race start time and consider bringing snacks (we will have coffee and snacks in the VIP area). 
  • Make sure you have your wristband on to gain entry (they will be handed out on March 8 at the Pre Race Party Packet Pick up on March 8th).
  • If you do not yet have your wristband you will need to check in with our volunteers to receive one.
  • Unfortunately due to occupancy limits we cannot allow friends and family into the VIP Area. 

Brooks "Run Happy" Tip: This week reflect on all that you have accomplished in the last 8 weeks. No matter your goal, you have worked hard, pushed yourself and should be proud. Embrace this moment, take a picture, write it down; enjoy every second. 

What's Happening in Training

Pre-Race Party, Packet Pick Up, and Costume Contest Fun Run: Tuesday, March 8 at 6:00 pm come join us for the Tuesday Night Fun Run at Fleet Feet Sacramento sponsored by Brooks. And did we mention there will be a costume contest?? Dress in your favorite musically inspired era/band/artist or all in GREEN for prizes and fun! Rumor has it Ellisa will be channeling her inner disco diva for the festivities...Following the fun run we will be hosting an exclusive packet pick-up party just for Shamrock'n trainees with food, exclusive shopping, giveaways and so much more!

Share Your Favorite Memory: We want to hear from you! What was your favorite memory from the Shamrock'n Half Marathon training program? Was it silly? Sweet? Embarrassing? Your response may get picked to be shared with the group! 

Making the Jump!: Got the marathon itch? Thinking of training for CIM this year? Want to conquer your first full marathon? Join us March 15th at 7pm for our "Making the Jump from 1/2 to Full" Seminar. RSVP today. Space is limited. 

What's Next: Have you thought about what you will train for next when Shamrock'n is over? We have a variety of training programs starting up in the next few weeks that will suit your training needs. If you want to try something new and venture into the foothills then check out our Trail Heads training program that starts the Sunday after Shamrock'n. For the ladies who want the VIP treatment we have our annual Kaiser Permanente Women's Fitness 5k and 10k training starting up in April. Don't forget about our FIT training for focused track workouts with Coach Chad. If you have any questions about these programs or any others feel free to contact Amy and Ellisa.

Facebook Ending: It has been fun getting to know each other at our workouts in our Shamrock'n Facebook group. However, all good things must come to an end and we will have to close our Facebook group soon after the Shamrock'n Half Marathon.  We will leave it up for a week after the race - so send those friend requests and get those phone numbers so you can continue meeting up once the group is closed.
