Running Diva Mom. She has lots of giveaways and it was great to win one! Thanks guys! I am entering some current giveaways a little more vigorously as I now think I have a chance!
I have missed the last two Monday Brain Exchange from Finishing is Winning but this week I am going to give it a go again because it is a subject near and dear to my heart.
Topic: Summer Racing
Question: What are your summer race plans? Are you trying anything new this year? What race are you looking most forward to?
I plan to race as much as I can this summer. I am racing in two new states, Maryland and Colorado. One is a 12K Trail Race. Both the distance and the trail aspect are new. The Maryland race has a mother/daughter division. I will race as always on July 4. I hope to do the Stowe 8 Miler. I love the distance, the scenery, and it is a loop! It will depend on if I am home. I was going to try a 10 miler but I will be gone when the one I wanted to try is happening. I hope to run the Susan G. Komen 5K. I have had to miss this the last couple of years. I am going to race the 100 on 100 at the end of the summer with a team of 6. This is an awesome race and I found out last year how much fun it is to be part of a team. Next weekend - is Memorial Day kicking off summer - I am racing in the VCM, a half marathon component! I am wildly looking forward to this. I know I will find some other races to run, hopefully some I have never done before. I may try some new ones in June but it depends on how overwhelming the end of the year is at school.
Last night I ran and accomplished something which rarely happens up here in the hills! But one of my students told me his baseball team was playing in my town so after supper I ran to the game. Two of my boys were on the team plus several students I have had other years. I sat and watched for a couple innings - time enough to see everyone hit (Or attempt to) before I ran home. I had a great time and was glad I took the time to do it.
I also need to be posting my half marathon goals for this Sunday! This is the one I've been training for! Coming soon!
