one of my favorite parts of running is the chance to participate in organized races. I love competing against other runners ... it helps motivate me to train harder.
this summer has been H.O.T. here in Charlotte. So far I've only run in 2 races (NoDa 5k back in June and RFYL July 4th 4 miler Spectacular earlier this month). the thought of racing during these muggy and humid days makes me break out in a sweat.
ordinarily I would've already been signed up for a race in August but so far I haven't found anything that I truly want to race.
in the past I've run the OrthoCarolina Classic 10k and Yiasou Greek festival 5k, both in August. this time I think I'll let Ryan run one of those events (both are on 8/23) and will set my sights on a new to me race ...
Sundae Run 5k
I like that there is a later start time ... makes it easier to drag Mason and Ryan out to cheer me on. I also like that there is ice cream involved! Plus the swag bag looks pretty neat. and it seems like it can be a "no pressure" race for myself.
in September I would like to run another 5k if it works out schedule wise. if not I would be ok with taking a break from races for a while.
what races are on the horizon for you guys?
