Happy St. Patrick’s Day! You have to love a holiday that allows each of us to “go Irish” just a wee bit once a year! It also happens to be my grandfather’s birthday – Lester Wildermuth. We always used to tease granddad about the leprechauns always blessing him because his birthday was on St. Patrick’s Day!
Wish I had not been driving on Saturday when we came through Shockoe Bottom here in Richmond (#RVA). Shockoe Fest 2014 was in full swing and it was so cool to see everyone wearing their green shirts, green hats, green shorts … I even saw two gentlemen who were dressed to kill in all white suits with beautiful emerald-green ties. Totally sharp-dressed men and making a stir!
Whether you’re running in one of the many Shamrock Shuffles, Leprechaun Leaps or Green Legs and Hamstrings (swear that is a real event name) races this St. Patrick’s Day, Reebok is ready to outfit you in the latest emerald isle colored active wear! Pick up a new pair of hot lime running shoes, or perhaps a new kelly green tee and show off some Irish pride as you streak green across that finish line.
Now go grab your green and find a blarney stone to kiss for good luck! Be sure to check out our St. Patrick’s Day thread for more green good fun!
