Not only is St. Patrick's Day a great excuse for a party, it is a great excuse for a road race. There are races happening all over this fair country of ours. To find a race near you, check out Active.com. They have compiled a great list of fun races, from the Shamrock and Roll 5k in New Haven, Connecticut, to the 5 mile St. Patrick's Day Parade Run in St. Louis, Missouri.
These races might just be the time to test the findings on beer being a better post workout drink than water. On second thought, I'd stick to water for hydration. So get your Irish Up, and get off of the couch and go for a run. If you find yourself chasing a leprechaun, maybe you will find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
