Spring Running/Racing Is Now
This past weekend marked the last of indoor track - College & HS nationals, and the beginning of the Spring road racing with the NYC Half, LA Marathon, the Gate River Run, and the Encinitas Mile, just to name a few, big-time races.
I was thrilled to be healthy enough to do the NYC Half as a training run. A lingering left knee issue prohibited me from being able to do the training I would have liked, but I was happy to run the cool NYCHM course and have a productive training day.
Looking ahead, I'm signed up for some short local road races and I'll try to get in a track 10k and maybe 5k, 1500, 800 for fun. Come October, I'm signed up for the Chicago Marathon, but don't want to be thinking of that just yet. For right now, all I can think of is the sun, warm weather, and fast times on the track and road.
