Fall Races

Well, I haven't posted in a while, so I thought I would post an update with my fall race schedule.

Upcoming fall races:
  • Tri for Sight - September 5th (Lexington, KY)
  • K9 Race for a Cure 2k - September 11th (Nicholasville, KY)
  • RJ Corman duathlon - October 2nd (Nicholasville, KY)
  • Ironhorse Half-Marathon - October 31st (Midway, KY)
I am super excited about these four races. The Tri for Sight is coming up this Sunday, and will be my last triathlon of the season. It is just down to road in Lexington (actually the start is pretty much at KET, where I used to work!) so it will be very nice to not have to travel too far or wake up at the crack of dawn. It is kind of crazy that I consider 4:30am to NOT be the crack of dawn...this is a normal wake up time for me!

Next up I will defend my 3rd place overall title at the K9 Race for a Cure 2k race here in Nicholasville. The race takes place right on Main Street and goes right by our house - it will be nice to have Chad and Emma cheering for me from our front porch! The finish line is right in front of the library, so after I pass by the house Chad and Emma can walk a few blocks to meet me at the finish line.

Then, in early October I will be competing in the RJ Corman Duathlon here in Nicholasville. It will be nice to run to the start of the K9 2k, and ride to the start of the duathlon! This will be my first duathlon, so it will be interesting to see how that goes. I've been trying out some trainer specific workouts on the trainer on Sunday morning (ride 10 minutes, run 10 minutes, repeat 4x) and it has been really fun! I'm looking forward to the race.

My last big race of the season will be the IronHorse Half Marathon in Midway, KY (just about 20 minutes away) on October 31st. Kentucky is always so beautiful in the fall, and the race course will wind through some gorgeous central Kentucky horse farms.

I look forward to posting race reports!
