Happy Friday! Now that fall has finally arrived, I am feeling so much better about my running and running in general. So what’s the first thing any runner does when they feel good? Sign up for all the races of course. I’ve finally figured out some of fall and winter race plans and I am ready to share them with you.
Fall & Winter Race Plans
Veteran’s Day 10K- November 10th
There is something that just takes my breath away about running the Veteran’s Day 10K in DC. Walking to the start line, passing by the Veteran’s memorial at dawn and seeing so many Veteran’s already there paying tribute to their friends and family is quite emotional. Makes me literally stop and think about thankful I am. This course is flat and fast route through Hains Point in DC and a fun way to kick off fall racing.
Bethesda Turkey Chase 10K-November 28th
I do love a good sweat right on Thanksgiving morning. This is my favorite way to start celebrating the holiday season.
Jingle All The Way 15K- December 8th
A super fun way to get into the holiday spirit. Hope to have a good running base built up so it does not feel too hard to run almost 10 miles. This is a very similar course to the Cherry Blossom 10 miler in April. Always a super fun medal too!
Rock n Roll New Orleans Half marathon- February 9th
I’ve never been to New Orleans so naturally I conned a few of the girls to come along for a fun weekend. I hear the race is a blast! I am so excited about this one. Anyone else want to join us?!
That’s what I have so far! I am excited to start running longer again and actually enjoying it. What fall and winter races are you most looking forward to?
