11 Road Race Updates & Adjustments to My Racing Calendar
In a previous post, I blogged about the upcoming races I was interested in entering.
Well, thanks to my friend, Marcy, I now know that the Lewisburg 5-Miler won't be happening this year. I'm actually kind of relieved to hear this news, as I was torn between running the race & participating in the Lewisburg Arts Festival this year, which are both held on the same day. Due to the time-consuming nature of setting up our booth for this outdoor festival, I wouldn't have had enough time to have done both activities, unless I had someone else who could take care of the bulk of the setup. The other reason is that I've been doing this arts festival almost every year for the past few years, & my customers from this area tell me that they look forward to seeing me there every year. So, it looks like I'll be choosing to do the festival again this year!
So, right now, it looks like I'll be entering two road races:
Saturday, June 21, 2008, 8:00 am - Run For the Roses 5K. I plan to run this race with my CT5K running buddy (i.e., the same person I've been blogging about here!).
Saturday, July 19, 2008, 8:45 pm - Rockville Twilighter 8K (a.k.a., the Rockville Rotary Twilight 8k). This is a favorite race of my friend, Janice. Hope she runs it this year!
Also, I've decided to post my race calendar on the left sidebar of this blog, which I'll be adding very shortly, so be on the lookout for that update as well.
