Summer Running Plans





I am on week 3 of summer vacation already and I haven't really even done that much running. My focus this month was on training for my triathlon.  So yes, that will be Summer priority #1. When that is over, I will concentrate on other things.

So far, here's what's on my race calendar!



1. My Triathlon. That is coming up THIS weekend! I do feel like I am prepared as best I can be though!


2. The Monumental Mile. This is the race that is in conjunction with our Veteran's parade. I was really pleased with my effort last year at this race so hope I can do just as well.


3. The hot and hilly 4th of July race. This will be the 3rd year I'm running this race. I can't believe I even came back after the first year...lol. Since I spent most of my time this summer training for my triathlon, I don't really feel like I am in shape for a 5K (hmm, I think I may have said that last year too!) I'm going to talk my sister into running this one since she has never run it before!

4. I got invited to do a little race in Chicago but am still working on the logistics so that is up in the air for now.

5. The last race of the season I will be doing will either be the Color Run or The Love Run. Both races are held down at my island and I've placed in my age group at both of them.  I definitely want to try to do one or maybe both of them this year.

Tell me, what races do you have planned for this summer?  Will you be running any races in Chicago? -M


we will be linking up with the gals from TOTR.

  5. Good luck this weekend! I don't have any races this summer, and I'll be getting back into running. I've had a month off and part of me is itching to get back out there.

  9. I'm proud of you for giving the tri a try! Lol I would like to do one some day, but the swimming in murky water keeps me at bay! Good luck, can't wait to hear all about it! As to Chicago... I have been debating and debating but just don't think I can make it happen this soon after Denver and our London trip in September. I'm pretty bummed. Hopefully you can make it happen!

    1. I would like to do Chicago sometime since it is over the summer but if it doesn't happen this year I'm totally okay with it.
