Spring and Summer Races on Tap.

I was up and at ‘em this morning for a few miles in the hood. Love this pretty green view.

Post run concoction…frozen cherries, strawberries and almond milk. Plus a little squeeze of lime because…why not? Makes me feel like I’m on a staycation.

Speaking of running…I do have a few races that I plan on doing over the next few months. I do also want to put a fall marathon (or 2) on the calendar but for now I have some local races that I’d like to knock out. There are so many fun ones around Texas that I’d like to take advantage of!

Here’s what’s coming up in the near future…

Divas Half Marathon in Galveston / April 19th- This weekend! Running right along the beach should be a good time. Fun road trip planned down there with my girl Malaika.

Vineyard 5k in Grapevine / May 2nd- I ran this one last year and won first place in my age group! Figured it would be great to return this year and maybe compete for another wine glass trophy.

Memorial Day Marathon in Dallas / May 31st- Should be a fun run though Bachman Lake and lots of my fellow Marathon Maniacs will be there! Can’t wait.

Wounded Warrior Half Marathon in Las Colinas / June 14th- Running through my hood is always fun! It’s usually a warm one this time of year but it will be a great tune up going into summer marathon training.

And maybe a few more to come…you know I always have something up my sleeve.

What races do you have coming up this spring/summer?

  1. Sounds like you’re all set! Too bad there’s not a lot of races available in my area during the summer. It’s just too hot! There are races located near the beaches, but I hate having to drive so far (and through congested traffic) for some races! So we’ll see…

  2. Those all sound like great races. I have 2 coming up the next 2 weekends, but one of those may not actually happen – we shall see. I also just applied for Chicago for the fall, so fingers crossed I get in!!

  3. I did three races in the last month. There’s nothing but a fun run between now and a June sprint triathlon. And then it’s all downhill from there with late summer/early fall 5 and 10ks.
