The races saga continues......


Last weekend was really the last weekend of anything easy from here on out until the marathon.  I have a completely packed running schedule coming up for the next ten weeks.  Yes, you heard it right, ten weeks!

Here's the long run plan starting 9/29 through 12/7:
How's that for a fall running schedule?  Holy cow am I going to be busy.  I'll be happy to get through it all!!  Seriously, though, I'm looking forward to each and every race.  The Virtual 10k will give me December's race so I'll have run 24 races in 2013 with at least one race each month - a first for me.  Who says running has a season?

I also plan to take some rest from running 7-10 full days off sometime in December just like I did last year.




What races are on your calendar this fall?  Anybody going to be at the races I'll be at?









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

  2. I have Brooksie Way Half as well. Not sure how I'll approach it. Would like to race it and PR, but will see how I feel.

    Goal race is Detroit Marathon, my first full marathon. No time goal - just want to run well.

    After that I don't have plans. Maybe Kona Hot Chocolate, a Turkey Trot or something else.

    1. Turkey Trot is the perfect amount of recovery time after Freep

    2. Josh - as you know, Brooksie is a tough one to PR on which would make it extra special if you did. Good luck! I will see you there!

  6. I want to do the Hot Chocolate race so bad and there is one in St Louis this year only about 3 1/2 hours away, but the date just doesn't work.

    Looks like a lot of racing, but a lot of fun in there. Stay healthy!

    1. Hey Michael - the race I mention is a local race in the Detroit area and not related to that organization. Inaugural year too!

  9. I have lots of races on the cards, as many as I can fit in, but for now I am aiming at racing a half in about 3 weeks.

  10. Good luck this weekend at Brooksie Way. That half is no joke!! You did great last year so I have no doubt in my mind you will kick butt again this year.
