What better way to start your St. Patricks Day Saturday than with a 5-mile run through downtown? The annual St. Patricks Day Parade Run starts at 9 a.m. today on Broadway (between Walnut and Clark streets; www.irishparade.org), and its more fun than it sounds. Most of the runners wear green and other Irish paraphernalia, and at the end of the course you reap the benefits of the Michelob ULTRA Runners Village, where free water, an energy drink and samples of the sponsors product (if youre 21 or older, at least) are yours to enjoy. Not a bad way to start your day after all.
