Well, I lied. I'm not racing after all :( Just found out that the 5K I signed up for is a walk, not a run. Who gives out prizes by age group for a run?!? Oh, well. At least that lets me do my 12 miler tomorrow before the monsoon that's predicted on Sunday! Have a great weekend everyone.

Running the "Irish for a Day" 10 miler in Minneapolis on Saturday. :D
My first official ten mile race! Should be useful to see how well I'm doing training for my first Half Mary in May. :)

I have the fianl XC of the series I've been running - 6 races - on Sunday. They have been very challenging 5ish mile runs in the snow, ice, rain, wind (almost blown off my feet, at least it wasn't toward the edge of the cliff!) the mud, the lakes, yes great fun. emoticon

I ran a half marathon this sunday gone, it was going to be an easy paced race but the course was so easy that I upped the tempo a bit and pb'd @ 1:37:05

Oh - don't overdo the beer - is that before or after the race? Beer is good in that it is full of carbs that you need to replace the glycogen in your muscles. Beer is good in that it hits the spot and will actually help you rehydrate, drunk in moderation - ie half - 1 pint. Drink with a pint of water. Oh was that boring?

Season opener for me this weekend. St Paddys 5k in Ottawa.

Excited but kinda nervous. Would it be wrong to drink beer at 10am?

I found a running club in Vancouver washington that has a race almost every Saturday. I won't treat each one as a race but this weeks is a 7.75 race. Kim (kgpossibe) and I are doing it. Will treat it as a long distance training run. But will be great to still rub shoulders with others.

Salmon Creek 7.75 mile Race.

I am! Running a 5K in my town on Saturday. It's the first year and benefits the local YMCAs. Then on Sunday I'm volunteering at a St. Paddy's Day race in Somerville that I know some Sparkers are running. 6000 runners are signed up!!!! I'll be directing traffic and then handing out medals at the finish line with my triathlon teammates.

Good luck everyone!
