sweat. rough. tough. muddy. colorful. long distance. diabetes. boardwalk. time prediction.

all of those words describe what my summer is going to entail and all the things i am going to be training for these next few months.
i have either signed up or am planning to sign up for

May 6th:
Mall to Mall. (run from one mall to the other side of town mall)
8.6 miles
Time Prediction Race. Steady pace wins the race. (If you predict the closest time to your race time, you win!) I was a couple minutes off last year.

May 19th:
Marion Festival Races.
Half marathon or 5k.
Don’t know if I’ll be ready for the 1/2 by then, but we shall see.

June 2nd:
Color Run (in Chicago)
5k

June 17th:
Warrior Dash – Illinois
5k from hell.

June 30th:
Tour De Cure – Coralville, IA
Bike Ride to help cure Diabetes!
You choose from 100 miles, 50 miles, 25 miles, or 5 miles.
I might do 50 or 25 depending on how I feel about riding a bike for that long. I’m a runner, not a cyclist.
