Although I have totally forgotten to mention it on the blog, I actually am training for several upcoming races.
August 18: OUCH Half Marathon (http://www.ouchrace.com/) with the LiveUncommon Race Team.
September 23: Quad Cities Half Marathon (http://qcmarathon.org/) with LiveUncommon.
October 27: Lagomarcino’s Cocoa Beano 5k. (http://www.lagomarcinos.com/) Running, followed by chocolate? No brainer. Hands down my favorite race the last two years.
November 3: Tyranena Beer Run 1/2 Marathon (http://www.tyranena.com/beerrun/). This may be the race I’m most excited for. It’s held at a brewery in Wisconsin, and the race is followed by a pasta and beer party.
But today I made a decision to do something which I have been wanting to do for a really long time. I am going to pace/crew my running mom friend Tara at the Heartland 100 (http://www.ksultrarunners.org/) on October 13. I am so excited. Tara is an amazing ultrarunner, and I am excited to get a chance to experience an ultra, help her meet her goals, and just have fun. It will be so awesome to have this experience, I am beyond excited. Tara blogs at http://mommysarunner.blogspot.com/ – although I think she has taken some time away from the blog this summer. I’m looking forward to learning more about the “crazies” that run ultras, and getting an opportunity to share my experience here on this blog. It’s going to be fun.
