Run you clever boy and remember

Who is running a race this year? 5K, 10K, half-marathon, marathon, ultra-marathon, Spartan?
After losing and re-gaining, and then starting to lose weight again, I am now training for my second marathon. I hope to beat my last experience two years ago, which included a near-death experience at mile 17 and an over-all finish time of 4 hours and 12 minutes.
Anyway, if you are running, post your race date here and I will do my darnedest to remember to send you a message of encouragement the night before/day of your race.
For those of you thinking "I could never run a race," just remember, while you may never win a race (I know I never will), you will always finish before those who choose not to get out and run!

    To MarshallLuke: My next big race is my first marathon on Sept. 20. Out of curiosity, when is your second? I'll try to send you a little note of encouragement as well! :flowerforyou:

    To xcalygrl: Wow! Good luck and have fun!

    ETA: The Doctor Who reference was really what caught my attention.

    Whovians everywhere. :smile: (and really - there's no smiley with a fez? that's a shame)

    Finished my annual 5k race on Sunday with a new PR (7 minutes faster than my two-years-ago best at the Baltimore Women's Classic), so I just wanted to say GOOD LUCK to anyone with upcoming races!

    And MarshallLuke, let us know when you're running so we can cheer you on too!

    Y'all got some good races coming up and I just know everyone is going to kick some serious butt!
    I am going to put these races in my calendar and do my best to send notes of encouragement for your races!
    And Vmisslin, since you asked, I am running the Cape Cod Marathon on Oct. 26. (I recommend this race to anyone who wants a beautiful seaside and New England-ish race!)

    And for those of you who felt this should have been more Doctor Who-ish, I will have you know that one of my primary training songs is Murray Gold's "I am the Doctor".

    I also thought this was a Doctor Who thread. :laugh: I'm planning on doing a run later in the fall, but I haven't decided which one yet.

    So far I've done the Mud Factor race in June. I was supposed to do another one, a charity 3k, but storms kept me away - I did end up doing my milage on the treadmill though.

    Upcoming I have a 5k on July 30th and the end of my running class and then a 5k run at the airport down the airstrip in August. Doing another mud run in August as well to celebrate my birthday. Tentative plans for other races but not signed up for anything else at the moment.

    I don't run. I love Doctor Who! I was a bit disappointed when I opened this thread! Good luck to all of you runners though.
