After spending the winter training indoors (and not motivating myself to drive to the gym quite often enough, if I’m really honest), I am so thankful that warm weather seems to finally be here to stay. I’ve begun running a few times a week around my neighborhood to kick-start my spring/summer running season.
I don’t know about you, but it helps keep me moving when I have races scheduled. I’ve registered for some of the races on my list, and I intend to register for the rest when they start opening up in the coming months. This is definitely an optimistic goal. I have never run this many races in a three-month span. Distance isn’t a problem. I don’t intend to attempt anything longer than a 10K in the summer months, and I already run 5K pretty regularly. It’s just…I know it’s going to be hard to get up and go on this many early weekend mornings. But I know it will be good for me.
Also, nothing is planned as far as family travel for the summer yet, so one or two of these may drop off the schedule if they conflict with something later on. I just need to have a list going to keep myself on track!
