Races

So, I realize that running doesn't have to mean racing.
 
We all choose to run for different reasons.
Loose weight
Gain confidence
Alone time
Free therapy
Grieve
Celebrate
Challenge yourself

In order to be a "runner" all you have to do is...RUN!

I know a lot of people who run just because they enjoy it, they don't race. Personally, I love to race.



I used to look forward to big invites and all the smaller meets every week during cross country and track seasons.

Lately though, I have just done one race(5k) and I only have one on my schedule for the near future (October 16th 6,6k).

So I've started the process of looking into more races to put on my calendar. I want to challenge myself more and see what I can do. I also want to get more running skirts and come up with some very fun race day outfits!!!

I'm thinking I'm going to add a Turkey Trot 10k in November, then I'm going to see about more 5/10k's for the spring and maybe even a half! My longest race ever is a 5k so I'm excited to start trying out longer races! I'll keep you updated on what races I decide to sign up for.

What Races do you have coming up?
What is your favorite distance to race?
