The next couple of weeks are going to be full of amazing racing fun! I am ready to get out there and rock the marathon on Friday. On Friday I will be racing 24 Hours Around the Lake. I am approaching this race differently and have hardly been thinking about race day. I am treating this race as though it is one of my spontaneous race entries where I decide to run the day before the race. Oftentimes it is the spur of the moment races where I perform the best because I am mostly focused on enjoying the experience and have a secondary goal of getting out there and running my heart out. I plan to do the same on Friday and soak in the adventure of running a marathon at night!
After the race on Friday my race calendar is jam packed! I will be joining our friends from Athletes for a Fit Planet
and our family farm Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs
at the Race Expo for the Beach to Beacon 10K and The Falmouth Road Race. I am egg-cited to talk with all of the runners about our family farm as well as to talk about our work with Athletes for a Fit Planet to help with Sustainability Initiatives at athletic events. In addition to working at the expos I will be joining the racers on the starting line. At the B2B 10K I am hoping to P.R. While at the Falmouth Road Race I am looking forward to experiencing “America’s Family Race” on Cape Cod, running the historic 7 mile course in the fresh ocean air.
I am also racing my favorite race this August, The Vermont 100 on 100 Relay. I will be joined by two other amazing women runners to make up our Ultra Team of Pete and Gerry’s Organic Chicks to race 100 miles on Vermont’s Scenic Route 100.
What races will you be racing in the next couple of weeks? I’d love to have you share your race stories!
