Ever since running the Firecracker 5K on the 4th of July I’ve had the racing itch. Having not raced since Boston I felt like I had gotten out of the rhythm of racing. I at times asked myself if I even cared about racing as much as I had in the past. Was it time to hang up my racing flats for awhile and just focus on training? The Potomac River Running Firecracker 5K reminded me that I love to race. I love the atmosphere. I love being around like minded people. Whether I PR or not does not determine how fun I have at a race.
Being a marathon GEEK. I pretty much love the 26th of every month because it has 26.2 in the date – so when I saw that Potomac River Running had added another race to their roster and the date was the 26th – I knew I had to sign up.
If you haven’t heard about this race yet – it starts and finishes at South Lakes highschool, is only $25 till August 1st and starts at 7:30 so you can beat the heat!
