LINE ‘EM UP…
Did you ever have an event sneak up on you?
Something that you marked down on your calendar months ago and banished it to the deepest recesses of your memory (aka you basically forget that sucker) only to have it suddenly pop up going: “Here I am.”
A birthday, anniversary, trip, holiday… or dreaded DMV appointment (btw, I have to renew my license in March).
It’s like a calendar ninja just stealthily sneaking up on you and waiting to pounce.
That’s pretty much the feeling I have with my Fall racing schedule.
Yup, we’re talking about 5 races that are staring me right in the kisser.
Go ahead and make the appropriate “kissy face” sound effect. I’ll wait.
Now, I didn’t forget about these races. If you ask Lindy, it’s pretty much impossible for me to forget anything about running.
And I have been training (I just did a 11.5 mile training run on Saturday).
But this past week I was planning out my schedule for the next six weeks and it really hit me that I’m going to be quite the racing fool between now and Turkey Day (gobble gobble).
Here’s the lowdown on my pavement pounding near future:
- 10/17- Lexus LaceUp Irvine (10K)
- 10/24- Lexus LaceUp Ventura (13.1)
- 11/07- REVEL Canyon City (13.1)
- 11/14- Lexus LaceUp Palos Verdes (10K)
- 11/26- Atlanta Half Marathon (13.1)
I did have the foresight to spare my legs a tad and not overload on the back-to-back-to-back long races this Fall… no 3 half marathons in 33 hours like I did back in 2014. You can read about that “Insane-o-thon” here.
I’m an ambassador to both the REVEL and Lexus LaceUp race series, so I plan to be spending some extra time at the races (look for me at the expos and/or after the races) and also giving some post-race coverage/reviews here on TTK.
So, line those races up like a row of sweaty dominoes and let’s get busy.
