Next up!!!!

My next race is this Saturday, the Alpenfest 10k in Gaylord, Michigan.  Race #49 - Woohoo!

I love running this race because it's a nice small town race(only 80 runners last year) and I love small town races because I have an opportunity to place in my age group.  Haha!  I actually didn't run this last year but two years ago I won this!  First in my Age Group with a 49:09 - crazy huh?  Crazy slow to win.  I'd never come close to placing in a race in the Detroit area with that time.

I looked at last years results and I probably would have won my age group last year as well so I'm hoping to at least place in it this year.  I've had eight miles on the schedule for this Saturday for my long run(only 8, I know crazy) but I switched out my pace run for this run and ran my long run this week already so I can race.

One of the best things about this race last time was that they had fresh strawberries at the finish line.  I hope they have that again.  It's also looking like a much cooler weekend there so should help give some nice running results.

See you at the finish line!

Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!


  1. Good luck! Hope you come out on top again! Fresh strawberries after a race would be awesome! I usually get green bananas.
