I ran the Portland, Oregon 5K Shamrock Run March 12, 2000. I started at
the front line and was gulping fumes from the ambulance that was parked
near the starting line when the race started. This made my start
unpleasant and more difficult. When I finished the race. I was pushing
very hard and there was a small engine running (generator) and the fumes
just went right straight into my lungs and made me choke when I needed air
the most. I did not like these two aspects of the race at all. All other
things and activities were fun and well done. Thank you.
