Who is racing/doing an event this weekend? (Read 63 times)


Barking Mad To Run

    I include 'doing an event' because even though I am participating in a 5K and, technically, it is a race,  what I do at my events can hardly be called "racing", lol.   Time has marched on for me and my racing days are long over.  But what the heck, I still manage to have fun at the running events I participate in.


    I am doing the CACC Mardis Gras 5K.  CACC = Children's Advocacy Center of Comal County, an organization of child abuse prevention, education, etc., in an effort to stop child abuse forever.    Held in Ne Braunfels, TX, about 30 minutes from San Antonio.


    This is 'race" number 16 for me for 2013.

      I KNOW that you're racing, Scotty!


      I'll be running the Gate River Run 15K tomorrow. I picked up my packet as soon as I rolled into town. Expecting 1:22, hoping to break 1:20.

      5K - 25:16, 10K - 55:31,  15K - 1:20:55,   HM - 1:54:54

      Just B.S.

        Still 2 months away from racing season here but good luck to you Scotty and Tom

        and everyone else lucky enough to be living near a race venue this weekend!

          Warm Hearts 5k tomorrow morning. It was rescheduled from February 9. I don't have a lot of speed in me right now so I doubt I'll PR, but whether I "run fast" or not is TBD. Smile

            Indianapolis Mini-Marathon training series 10K in the morning!  Goal is sub 48:00!  Good luck everyone!

            PRs:  5K 22:59, 10K 46:54,HM: 1:51:15


              Fight for Air 5K Walk tomorrow morning. They've only just started listing it as a Walk/Run, but I'm taking the kids in the double stroller. I'd die of a heart attack trying to run with them.

                By "doing", does managing count?


                I'm helping a buddy put on the third annual 5K at my old high school in the morning.  It's one of those races I love to help with, since everything is taken care of and everything runs smoothly...  We do it grassroots, and introduce new runners to popsicle sticks.

                  Running my 2nd Half tomorrow.   And of course, I have a terrible cold.   Not that I'll let that stop me!  Smile

                    Scotty and Jen, I hope you're feeling better before your races!


                    Coralie-- you just amaze me with your stroller races.  So cool!

                      Miles for Music 20K on Sunday.


                        I wish.  Colonoscopy for me on Monday so my weekend is pretty shot.  I will get in a long run tomorrow before my liquid diet begins.


                        Good luck everyone and have fun!

                          I'm doing a HM organized by the YMCA down in Olean, NY on Sunday.  Should be fun.


                            I'm attending the NCAA indoor track national championships.  Does that count?


                            Pretty exciting night tonight.

                            You Rang?

                              I'm supposed to be racing tomorrow, but thanks to the weather here in New England, that isn't happening.  I was supposed to fly from Boston back home to SoCal today and run the Coaster Run 5k tomorrow.  American Airlines just cancelled my flight home and rebooked me on a flight tomorrow morning.  I'll be arriving at LAX about an hour after the race ends.
