Spring has Sprung, Time to Run

“Spring is nature’s way of saying “Let’s party!” When Robin Williams said that, he probably wasn’t imagining running a 7K as the “party,” but that’s how we’re welcoming the new season and celebrating St. Patty’s Day at AK. Just days after participating in the winter-themed Bedrace for Bridging at Buck Hill, the thermometer’s flirting with 70 and we’re kicking the dust off our running shoes. A total of ten AK Material Handling Systems team members are hitting the pavement of Downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul streets Saturday, March 12th to try their hand at running the Get Lucky 7K. That’s a couple of extra K’s more than many of us are used to (with the exception of a few our more dedicated runners), but we’ve accepted the challenge and are in it to win it. Or we’re in it to hit our target times, anyway.


The Race

The Get Lucky race consists not only of the 7K course, but also a 14K and a 21K, the latter of which is also known as a half marathon. The race courses wind through the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, and racers can replenish themselves with a free beer at one of the local participating Irish pubs after crossing the finish line. For AK runners, the Get Lucky 7K will either be a fun way to get out on a Saturday morning or a primer for the lineup of races that will take place over the next six months, depending on who you ask. Most importantly, though, the event will be a great opportunity to team build and for everyone involved to spend some quality time with their fellow team members outside of the office.

If you’re planning on running, don’t hesitate to stop over and hang out. We’ll be dressed in our all-green gear, with odds pointing towards certain team members flaunting green hair. After all, “anything worth doing is worth overdoing.”
