We’re nearly into May, and comfortably back into running season. Now that I’ve got my first half marathon out the way, it’s a good time to think about all the other races I’m doing this year. I’ve signed up for a lot so far!
My 2016 Race Calendar: The Road to NYC Marathon
Nashville Rock’n’Roll 5k: April 30th
Considering that I haven’t run in two weeks due to injury, and the weather is looking so rocky that I’m getting warnings my flight may be affected, this one is in danger of not happening! I’d hoped to run my first ever sub-30 5k on this race, but now I’m aiming to just be able to run it after having some severe issues with my knee and hamstring. Fingers crossed!
This weekend brought my favourite 10k of the race calendar. The Scotland Run 10k takes place each spring in Central Park, and brings in huge crowds and a great atmosphere – and a great theme! I’ll take any excuse to celebrate my home country of Scotland, especially since I don’t get to visit as often as I’d like. I was wearing every piece of Scotland themed clothing I owned, and was really excited for this race.
This weekend saw the NYRR Spring Classic 10k in Central Park, bringing the first race of spring and my first 10k of the year. There really is something magic about running in Central Park, especially when the weather is fresh, the sky is blue and the energy among the runners is high. This run was extra special too, because my dad was visiting from Scotland for the weekend and he ran the race too!
