I am a total addict. I'm addicted to races. I'm not a fast runner, but I love the rush of a race, the people, and especially the friends whom I get to run with. A few days ago, I decided to sign up for 3 more races.
1) Glow for Hope 10K - I'm excited about this one because it's a NIGHT race and lots of glow-in-the-dark possibilities to add to my running outfit. I'm most excited about running this with lots of friends - my 2 running buddies from my last 10K, my Ragnar Relay teammates, and a couple of Mom's Club friends. We're just as excited about the Beer Garden at the finish line and the craziness that can happen when you combine post-race euphoria, beer, and friends!!
2) Sunrise Stampede 5K - It's their inaugural race. I love small town races. Even though I almost always end up at the back of the pack, I love that it's not crowded and you can't beat the $15- registration fee too! Running this one with the hubs. We won't be running together - he's way too fast for me - but it's always fun to start together and to get that big hug from him at the finish line!
3) Marine Corps Marathon 10K - On the other end of the spectrum is this huge race. Nope, NOT the full marathon (YET). I decided to run the MCM 10K because I NEEDED an October race that is not too close to my Ragnar Relay race. I have no idea how long I would need to recover from Ragnar so I have this one set at the end of October. Oh and I also like that you get a medal for running a 10K race too. Hee hee. I'm a little nervous about this race being a week away from my 5K race and 2 weeks away from my first half marathon! But I think I'll be ok. I'm going to treat this one as one of my long runs and just have fun. I haven't found a friend to do this race with me yet. Hoping my friend Nikki does it with me.
Are you just as addicted to races as me? How often do you have a race? Every month, every other month?
