Now that the Wallis Sands Half Marathon has come and gone (read race recap HERE) I need to pick some more races to run for the summer. Currently the only race that I have on my schedule is the Vermont 100 on 100 Relay in August which I will be running as a team of 6.
I will be running with Sarah Canney (Run Far Girl), Natalie (Nat Runs Far), Allie (Vita Train 4 Life), Laura (Mommy, Run Fast) and Angela (Happy Fit Mama). We will be racing as Team Air Supply (I’ll tell you the story about the team name later). I’ve run the VT 100 on 100 before as both a 6 person team and a 3 person ultra team and it’s one of my favorite races. The race starts at Trapp Lodge in Stowe, Vermont and ends at Okemo, Vermont.
For other races this summer I am looking at the Western New Hampshire Trail Running Series which has several awesome trail races in New Hampshire and Vermont. I already ran the Dirty 5K in Hanover New Hampshire on Mother’s Day with my kids. Hopefully I can run at least a couple more of these races.

I am also scheming a way to run the Catamount Ultra Trail 25K in Stowe, Vermont. This race takes place on Saturday, June 22nd. If I am going to run it I need to get a few more long trail runs under my belt beforehand as this race is coming up quickly. It would be fun to get off the roads and to hit the trails for this trail race!
Another fun race that I am considering this summer is the Race to the Top of Vermont. This is a 4.3 mile run up to the top of the tallest mountain in Vermont. The race goes up the Mt. Mansfield Toll Road. This race can also be biked too!
I am not sure which of these races will happen but am looking forward to challenging myself on some different courses!
