I did some research for races in the greater Hampton Roads area. Here are some potential races in the next couple of months:
Spouses’ Club of Fort Eustis Wounded Warrior 5k/10k – 4/28 We ran this last year. How could you forget….we were so pleased that we made it to the start (of what we thought was the 10k) with minutes to spare. Only to realize 3 miles into our run, as we rounded the corner to the finish line, we had run the 5K! And then, we thought it best to go ahead and run the 10k because 3.1 miles really doesn’t constitute a long run.Well, good news my running friend, if we sign up for both races we can save $5. Both races only cost $50!
Oceanfront Jaycess 3rd Annual Cinco de Mayo 5k - We ran the first one 2 years ago! At the time we thought we should run more 5k’s and work towards a super fast PR.
10th Annual EQUI-KIDS 5k – 5/12 We always talk about running this one. Could be a fun “trail run”.
Elizabeth River Run – 5/26 Memorial Day weekend in Portsmouth. I haven’t run this one in years! Not since it used to be in Norfolk. Not sure I want to run it this year….it breaks the rule of not leaving the Oceanfront during Memorial Day weekend.
CHKD RunWalk for the Kids – 6/16 I ran this last year with Team Hoyt. It was HOT! It is the Saturday after the last day of school. I know I will still be in town… Will you be on vaca?
Check them out and let me know your thoughts. Regardless of which race we select, I know we will be rewarded with a “quilt worthy” t-shirt!
