I think I can fit the whole circuit in with the exception of the Lakefront 10 which is 2 days before Boston. F3 half was a good race as was the March Madness half this winter. Yeah, I love running with 30,000 people for a whole 5 miles. I wish it was a more substantial race for all the hassle.

Who said I am a Russian?

Dang. Why no bike valet love. Sorry if I was misled and shared wrongly.
@michael b -> you doing the whole circuit? I feel weird not doing the shamrock, but it never fits in my training (got the flying pig marathon in May, anyone else?) all of this for an 8k. Craycray.
@serge -> this winter bike commuting has cost me a drive train and both my wheels are so untrue I ride like I downed a growler of founders backwoods bastard. F3 half was good for my training motivation in winter, but I have had to do a bunch of long runs on death mills. But where's your Russian pride? This winter is nothing compared to something in Hовосибирск?

I'm running it even though I hate this event but it's part of CARA's runners choice series. I went to the expo today via Divvy & there were rebalance guys there with extra bikes waiting & freeing up dock space.

I expect they'll do the same on Sunday. I'll be riding my old blue Trek 830 with grey panniers & silver fenders.

Not a word of bike valet on the race day in the Participant Guide, either. Only during the Expo (page 4).

I wish I had a chance to train. I ran very little, mostly during February vacation, and haven't even ridden my bike this winter much, for obvious reasons.

There was bike valet last year. Strangely enough, there's no mention of it this time on the Shamrock website (unless I missed such mention), though it does encourage to take Divvy to the race.

I hope everyone's trainings been going great and best of luck to folks doing the Shamrock. Someone told me they might even have bike valet this year!?!
