I was reading Aron's post over at runners's rambles about how running a race always seems to make you want to sign up for more.
I definitely find this to be true.
On Sunday, I registered for TWO fall races. Registration opened that day for The Middle Half in Murfreesboro, a race I have run in all four years they've had it and where my current half marathon PR is from. It's the Saturday after I run the Chicago marathon, so it may be a bit much to hope for a half PR when my main fall goal is to break 4:00 at Chicago... but I'm looking forward to running the race anyways. If you live around here, I encourage you to sign up soon. It always sells out fast!
I also decided to join some friends and register for the Warrior Dash on September 17. It's only a little more than 5K, but there are apparently over 10 obstacles throughout the course. And a mudpit. It should be fun!
I'm also thinking about running The Flying Monkey Marathon again in November. That should round out my year of racing nicely. I may hop in a few other short races here and there, but for now I feel pretty good about my schedule. For some reason, I don't feel like trying to plan too much right now.
