Hey, maybe one of these days we will do a common race. Ever consider coming over here to do the Fifth-Third Riverbank 25k? That's my current big training goal--2.5 more weeks!
I just started really running so I am not too hip on what races are out there That would be a good goal for me next spring though! Is it the Grand Rapids area? That drive isn't too bad from here.
Good Luck with your training and your race! I can't wait to hear all about it
Thanks! I'm way excited...but I have to admit that I'm looking forward to a bit of a taper and going back to long runs of no more than 2 hours. I plan to do my last and longest run on Mon...3 hours (probably ~16 miles). This Summer I hope to maintain my mileage, but spread over 5 runs, rather than 4, so my long run won't be quite so long when it's hot.
Yep, it's in GR. Biggest 25k in the US. Last year there were 12k participants (I think that was including the 5k, but far more people register for the 25k). This year is the 30th anniversary, so it is sure to be a big crowd--I just hope the weather is better than the last 2 years (cold and rainy).
