Running notebook: Luck of the Irish

March is here, with a small lion's roar. That must mean it's time for the Shamrock Run. It will go off tomorrow in the Old First Ward.

The race is officially sold out, so about 5,500 runners will start the event at noon. All of them will have a nice windbreaker to at least consider using at the race.

The event also is the start of the News' Runner of the Year series. The full calendar will be out on Sunday as part of the running column.

The weekend's other run is the Slush Run at SUNY-Fredonia. Starting time is 9 a.m. Sunday; call 673-3451 for details. Thanks to for the race listings.

See you Saturday, cold permitting.
