Last Weekend Before Big Races ( Including Rock n Roll and Disneyland Half Marathons)

School may be back in session in some areas but it’s still summer in our little part of the world!

After doing some yard work yesterday, we spent most of the day swimming and hope to do more of it today! 

I say it is still summer for us because we still have much to look forward to.  Next week at this time we will be at the beach preparing for the Rock n Roll Half Marathon.
At the same time, some of our friends will be participating in the Dumbo Double Dare at Disneyland in California. If that is you, best of luck to you!

Yet others will be participating in various races over labor day weekend.
Where ever you will be racing, we all have one thing in common. This is our last weekend to get our training in.  I don't know about you, but I'm kind of nervous!
I know I'll be doing a long run today, leg strengthening exercises on Saturday, and another long run on Sunday.
If you have a race over labor day weekend, how are you training these next couple of days?
If you don't have a race, how are you spending the rest of the summer?


  1. We loved Rock and Roll Virginia Beach last year! We ran the relay! Have fun and enjoy some tasty food and libations after you finish running! VB has some great restaurants!

    1. Thanks! We are looking forward to it. We had a blast last year too!

  2. Good luck and have fun at the Rock n' Roll Half!!!

  3. I'm totally taking it easy this week and getting super excited for Dumbo! I ran RNR VA Beach 2 years ago. My race was terrible, but it was a great weekend. You finish on the beach!

    1. Sorry you had a bad race at Rock n Roll last year. I remember it was very hot, maybe the heat had something to do with it? Have a great time at Dumbo!!!!
