Last night 14 of us headed out for a great “St. Patrick’s Day eve” fun run. We were joined by Jordan from New Balance who brought free water bottles for the whole group and test shoes of the Minimus trail and 890 light weight neutral shoes. People laced up some test shoes and we headed out for an Irish tour of Baltimore. As I’ve mentioned in previous recaps, Baltimore has a fantastic social running group. Last night was no exception.
We headed out toward the Inner Harbor all wearing green and ran north to the “one and only” Mick O’Shea’s for a quick beverage stop. Mick O’Shea’s is located downtown in the Mount Vernon historic district and in my opinion is one of the best Irish Bar/Restaurants in Baltimore. We then headed back to the Inner Harbor for a stop and Tir Na Nog Irish restaurant. Tir Na Nog is right on the water and overlooks Federal Hill (where we usually run). We then ran back to City Sports feeling full of Irish vigor in an evening well spent among fellow runners. We all shared in the same joy of running and last night… we were all Irish.
