Race plans for the Rest of the Year

Now that the Perth Kilt Run is out of the way I still have a few races scheduled between now and the end of the year.

So far, my next race is the 5 Peaks Camp Fortune trail race next month. I did the 12 km race last year and am planning to do the same distance again. I did this one last year and quite enjoyed it. I figure doing it again this year will give me a nice diversion from my usual training. You can read about last year’s experience here.

Following that I am scheduled to be a pace bunny in the Army Run half-marathon. I have participated in the run for the past two year and last year as a pace bunny for the first time. You can read about that experience here.

Finally, in November I am running the Philadelphia Marathon which is my goal race for the second half of the year. The goal for that one will be to improve on my 3:23 from the Ottawa Marathon in May.

So far that is my schedule of races for the rest of the year. However, I am toying with the idea of finding a 5 km in order to see how fast I could run it. During the kilt I was on pace for a sub 20 minute 5 km so if I can find a 5 km race around here either this month or next month I will probably add that to my list.

What are your race plans for the rest of the year?
