I have been looking forward to Summer 2018 for almost a year, believe it or not. Since my summer last year was a bit jacked (full details HERE), I plan to take full advantage of every available opportunity to be outside (preferably in my running shoes) this year.
Here's what I have on tap thus far:
Last weekend (June 16th), I ran a local 5K. The Grinnell Games happen every year in my home town, and I make it a priority to participate. With the exception of last year (when I was actually in Duluth, MN for Grandma's Marathon), I have participated every year the Games have been happening (since 2012).
|Grinnell Games 2018...it was hot and humid!|
|From 2015....yes, I'm in a tutu, but I did snag a 2nd place AG finish LOL|
|There will be plenty of power walking happening|
|aren't the R'n'R Chicago medals pretty?|
So, that's what's happening in the next few months. It may seem like a lot of races (especially in the midst of marathon training), but I'm not planning on racing any of these events aggressively. I'm more of a runner (who races) than a racer (who runs).
Do you have your summer schedule set? Are you prepping for any fall races? Running for fun?
