Spring/Summer 2016 Race Calendar

Hello there. I’m taking full advantage of the nice weather, my proximity to Central Park and that my ankle (knock on all of the wood) is still in good shape and I’ve signed up for a bunch of races.

Will you be running any of these? Any other ones I should add to my list?

Here is my spring/summer race list:

April 3: Cherry Blossom 10-miler: in Washington DC: CHECK

Cherry Blossom 10-miler

April 24: Run as One 4-miler: I added 5 miles to this and called it a Brooklyn Half training run: CHECK

May 7: The Color Run with my sister! This is a 5K that I plan to walk/jog/not take too seriously.

May 8: Japan Run 4-miler. This is a NYRR Central Park race. I’m going to tack on a bunch of miles to make this a long training run too.

May 21: Brooklyn Half Marathon

June 5: I’m volunteering as a “Sparkle Runner” at the Girls on the Run 5K on Roosevelt Island. This means I’m not racing it, but encouraging my new running buddy – an elementary school age girl – to do her best and cover the distance. You can also race this yourself and the proceeds will go to Girls on the Run.

June 11: The NYRR Mini 10K. This is a women’s-only race in Central Park. My mom is running it, too.

June 25: Front Runners New York LGBT Pride Run 5-miler. This race is always so much fun. Run it with me!

June 26: I’m volunteering at the Achilles Hope and Possibility 4-miler, also in Central Park.

September 25: New Balance Bronx 10-miler 

Any great July or August races I should sign up for? Ideally something in the 10-mile or half marathon length!

What are you running this season?
