Upcoming Races

At the beginning of every year I always get excited about the race season and which races I want to run. I say "race" but really I am just out there for fun. I am not anywhere near fast enough to be competitive, especially in my age class.

So this year, I have already run a 3 mile race and did AMAZING (for me at least) and felt great 27:53!!

I haven't really decided on what else I am doing EXCEPT one big one.

HOOD TO COAST in Oregon.

This is a 199-mile relay with 12 runners in 2 days. I am so excited. One of my old friends contacted me when she got in the lottery and of course I couldn't turn down this opportunity. I am sure it is going to be one of the hardest things I do but totally worth it. This isn't until August however training starts NOW.

I have been working on strength training and I have realized that this race is all about running and even though my 5K time is significantly faster I need the endurance that only comes with practice.
Which means run, run, run.

Hope you all had a great weekend.

Happy Monday,
