Today the topic is How Often Do You Race?
My racing pattern lately averages about a race every 2 months.
So far this year I have run in 3 races (all half marathons) – Jail Break Run, Run Like A Diva, and Running with the Cows.
I have another 3 planned (mixed distances) – Baytown Bud Heatwave 5 mile, Southern Star Brewing Co. 5k, Houston Half Marathon.
I have to admit, I am looking for more! I would love to race at least once a month. I’ve been eyeing the Texas Bridge Series… 3 races, 3 months… with some big hills (over bridges).
Through my ambassadorship with Level Up Runs, I race in Virtual Runs once a month. The virtual runs do help with motivation and speed, but it isn’t the same as toeing the line on race day.
