As I am sure you all have noticed, the devastation in California’s wine country continues to wreak havoc. I am so sad for all the families and businesses that have lost so much and for the beautiful landscape that has been destroyed. Unfortunately, our plans to run the Napa Valley Ragnar have been cancelled. As I am disappointed, I know that we all have our health and are safe and sound. Next year for sure! In true “Runner Form” I am now, of course, looking to fill up my fall race schedule with a bunch of local races. Fortunately, the DC area has a ton of Fall Races To Run.
Fall Races To Run In The DC Area
I’ve been pretty conservative with my running and have slowly added back in the mileage after after my awful summer of running. I am feeling better than I have in a long time so, of course it’s no surprise, I am signing up for everything I can find. Last November I did 5 10K’s throughout the month so apparently this is my M.O. in the fall.
Veteran’s Day 10K
Nothing is more powerful than running by the monuments of fallen soldiers on Veteran’s Day in Washington, DC. Great course too if the wind is not whipping off of the Potomac River. I could also squeeze in another 10 K for a rare Friday race two days before this one. Is this just crazy?
Bethesda Turkey Chase 10K
A tradition for me the past few years. I love to get a negative calorie burn working on Thanksgiving Day.
Girls on The Run 5K-December 3rd
End of the season 5K is quickly approaching. The season always seems to fly by!
Jingle All The Way 15K?? December 10th
So I have not signed up for this one yet. It used to be an 8K which I thought was a great distance. I was going to stick to 10K’s until the first of year but…it’s so tempting. If am comfortably running 6 ish miles right now and feeling good, I should be able to add in a few more miles. I’ve never done a 15K which would mean an automatic PR right 🙂 I also saw the nice new medal they have for this year.
Someone talk me into it or out of it! Have any fun holiday races on your schedule?
