It’s that time of the month…
I am very excited to go boating again on Lake George. If only the weather would be consistently warm on the weekends. (This weekend, it may happen!!)
1. Over coffee/wine…
I’d tell you that I have run a few races this spring. But there seems to be a lag in available races this summer and then a cluster races for the fall.
It may be struggle to stay motivated to run with the heat and few races.
Will you be racing this summer? If not, does it affect your running mojo?
I’d tell you that I have been hiking every Sunday since last October. I really enjoy my fire tower climbs and waterfall views.
But boating on Lake George is one activity that the hubby and I share. Sunday is the day we go boating (because I do long runs on Saturday.)
Do you have to compromise with your significant other or can you do what YOU prefer?
I’d tell you that I’m excited to have more opportunities to run with others. Until recently, I ran alone during the week and with others only on Saturdays.
In May, SOAR started group runs with women every other Wednesday. Also on Wednesdays, there will be Ice Cream group runs scheduled (You run with others at different locations located near ice cream shops.)
In June, on Thursdays, there will be Trail group runs hosted by our local running organization.
In July, the Freihofer race training challenge will also begin group runs.
Do you have the opportunity to run with others? Or do you usually run alone? Which do you prefer?
I’d tell you that my fall race-cation weekend has been finalized. We are returning to Hampton Beach, NH and will be running the (in-person) Smuttynose 5k or half marathon. (There will 10 of us running the race.)
Unfortunately, I was not quick enough and last year’s perfect house was already rented. But instead we rented another with 5 bedrooms and 7 beds (not on the beach but .8 miles away.)
Do you have any race-cations or big races planned for the Fall? Anyone planning on running this race or have run it?
I’d tell you that the NYC Marathon will be held live in November. I know several runners who will be doing it. Yup, I’m having some FOMO.
I did time qualify for 2020 but did not want to run it two years in a row. Who knew that there would be a Pandemic and I could pick 2021, 2022 or 2023 to run it again.
Hey I’ll be 70 in 2023…so maybe things will be back to normal by 2024 and I’ll still be running half marathons?
Do you ever have second thoughts about a race that you did not sign up for?
Happy Running! What’s new with you? Any trips, races or fun summer activities planned? Please share.
