So as you know, I’ve been on a bit of a runner’s high ever since my 10 Miler last weekend. I have a half marathon in about two weeks, but after that I have no races on my calendar. I’d really like to do some fun 5 and 10ks this summer, but I have conflicts with the two I usually do. I am in a wedding the weekend of Race for the Cure (which is my absolute favorite 5k). I’m really quite sad to miss this, but getting to take part in a dear friend’s wedding will be absolutely worth it. I actually may be able to run the Capitol Hill Classic 10k. It’s on a Sunday and if you know me, you know I hate missing church, but since it’s just 6.2 miles, I think I can be home by 10am (it starts at 8:30) and make the 11am service. I was able to make the 11am service after running 10 miles starting at 7:30am, so I think I should be able to swing it.
But what about the rest of the summer? I would love to add a couple of shorter distance races to keep me motivated and running in the summer swamp-like DC heat. Anyone have any (local) races they do during the months of June, July, or August that they love?
