Summer Races 2014

Oh how I love when we just start to get a taste of warmer weather in Minnesota. I don’t know about everyone else but once it starts getting a bit warmer outside I get very motivated to run outside again!

My motivation led me to sign up for a BUNCH of summer runs! I’ve mentioned already that I signed up for runs but I had a lot of interest in what exactly I signed up for so I thought I would share in one post!

My first run that I am signed up for is the Minneapolis Marathon RELAYย on June 1st. I am running with my parents and one other person, a team of 4 people.

My final race that I am signed up for is the Women Rock Half Marathonย on August 30th! I ran this half last summer and I am very excited and nervous to do it again! I was not prepared last summer for this race so I hope to be more prepared this summer. I also hope to be a lot lighter this time around ๐Ÿ™‚ If anyone wants to tackle a half marathon this summer I’d love a running buddy!!!
