There's a very conservative number of happenings on my roster this year. When I say conservative, I am not joking...I have three official events bought and paid for. That's like half of what I'd normally have on my calendar.
Oh well, those three events are sure to be fun. And, since there's only three of them, I plan to showcase them.
But first, I should rewind and explain a bit about the lack of start (and finish) lines this season. Remember that little emergency surgery "incident" back on June 29th? Yes, well, that little incident threw a major curve ball into my running for the remainder of summer (for those who haven't been following my journey this summer, full details are HERE). In other words, there was ZERO running (having a nasty 6-inch suture seam directly over one's knee will do that to you).
Here's what's on tap for Fall 2017:
First up, there's the Kickoff 2 Kinnick 5K on September 30th (Iowa City, IA). Now in its 4th year, this event benefits the University of Iowa Dance Marathon (supporting fundraising efforts for childhood cancer treatment and research). The hubby and myself are both University of Iowa grads, so this event will be near and dear to our hearts. The route finishes on the field of Kinnick Stadium, the home of the Iowa Hawkeye football team!

So, that's what I have on tap for Fall 2017. Tell me about your schedule...any big races on the horizon? New events? Training for winter races?
