Running Report

by Brendan

Haven’t written about running\racing or cycling lately, what with writing about other things.  But 2013 is off to a good start.  As of today, I have 87 running miles for the month (and for the year), with 3 more days of running in January, which means a 100-mile month is possible.  (That’s always a goal for me, and trust me, much easier to do in January – March than in the summer months, when it’s 72 degrees at 6:30 A.M., with humidity of about 72 or more as well.)

No races coming up really fast, but soon.  The Newnan’s Lake 15k was Saturday (2 days ago), but I wasn’t trained for it.  The Trail of Payne 10k is March 16th, and I’m planning on that.

I ran the first version of it 3 years ago in March 2010, and it’s a fun race — out at the beautiful Paynes Prairie, mostly on trails, possibly even a little mud (depending on the rainfall).

And there should be a local 5k at least once a month or more for the next 5-6 months.  I oughtta try one of those.  And then in May, June, and July, the Beaches Fine Arts Triathlon Series in Ponte Vedra Beach, near Jacksonville.  It’s a sprint tri — quarter-mile ocean swim, 11 miles cycling, 5k running– and I’ve done it before, looking forward to doing it again.

So that’s today’s running news.
