Racin on…

Almost before you know it half the year is just about over.  Where does time go?  Thought I would look ahead and see what my race calendar looks like.

- Run for the Dream Half Marathon, (going to make this a long run 20 miler by adding 7 miles before the start, crazy I know!) (Info here)

- Nothing yet…

Yorktown Independence day 8k, Va,  An 8K loop on the scenic roads and trails of the Yorktown battlefield.(Info here)  

- Nothing yet…

- Dam Hard Trail Race 25k, Tn, Norris Dam, the trails in and around the Norris Municipal Watershed and Norris Dam State Park offer a challenging and rewarding array of single-track and jeep roads.(Info here)  

- Colonial 200 Mile Relay, Va,  A unique, overnight relay adventure through the heart of Virginia, beginning in Albemarle County in central Virginia and finishes in historic Jamestown.(Info here)  

- Crawlin Crab Half Marathon, Va, The innaugural Peroni Crawlin' Crab Half Marathon starts at the Hampton Roads Convention Center.  All runners will "crawl" past the beautiful waterfront.(Info here)  

- Marine Corp Marathon, Va, The Peoples Marathon and one of the “Must Do” running events. 26.2 miles run in and around our Nations Capital. (Info here)  

- Norfolk Freedom Marathon, Va, mission is to raise awareness and enlist support for the needs of Veterans and their families. Run thu Norfolk, Va this may be consider my home course, but I’ve never run downtown Norfolk…until this year! (Info here)  

- Turkey Trot 10K, Pa, May be considered my “Home Town Run,” I’ve logged tons of miles on the Peninsula both before moving away and after during family visits. (Info here)
- Sea Shore Nature Trail 50K, Va, This race kicked my butt last year….run on the trails of First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach, the course is lined with trees and follows hard-packed dirt trails through a variety of ecosystems.  The main trail is mostly flat, while side trails are slightly hilly with some tree roots to negotiate in certain sections. Wooden bridges are also found on several trails. (Info here) 

Well that about some up my running calendar for now…thing may change some, you just never know.  If your close to the 757 come on out and join me.
