I am really sad that fall is just around the corner. I love summer, but if you have read my blog for any amount of time you already know that. I am all about having fun the rest of the year with races. I am not worried about my time as I am doing so much walking training. Instead the past two races have been with other people and encouraging them along the way. This is something I have really enjoyed and plan to continue. I wanted to share some races that I think are must for the fall Lederhosen, Beer & Running - Fremont Oktoberfest 5K - September 23rd - I am not attending as I busy that day, but their is a discount code on Zozi for a team of 4 for $50! You know I love a good discount race, so of course this made my list.
Issaquah Run - September 30th - They offer a 5K and a 10K. This year will be my 5th year participating in this event. They event is being held a week earlier this year instead of during the usual Salmon Days festivities. I have no excuse to not do this event as the start line is less then a mile from my house. I have 11 miles on my walk plan for that day so I will need to do some warm up miles before the 5K.
Snohomish River Run - October 27th - This is a new race. They offer a 10K and a half marathon. I thought I might run this, but I am no shape to be running over 3 miles. I could walk it as I have 10 miles on my training plan for that day....hmmmm so much to think about. I wonder if one of my teammates would want to walk this. Is there a course time limit? I know I could do it under 4 hours...off to check the website.
Run Scared 5K - October 28th - I have not registered for this one yet, but it is on my radar to do. Providing I have someone to run with. Plus I have not done a costume run yet. Sure some people might say running in Sparkle Skirts is a costume, but I mean full on costume. Any one local doing this event?
Movember Mustache Dache - November 17th - I mentioned this one the other day. If I was in town this weekend - it would be a must my list. Just for the fun factor.
Seattle Marathon and Half Marathon - November 25th - I raced this last year and got my current PR. I was injured but I was well trained so I was able to get under 3 hours which is HUGE for me. I am registered this year thanks to a discount promo, but it is one week after the 3 day walk so I have feeling I will be walking it and not racing this year. Many people don't like this course, but I really enjoyed it.
