Fitness Friday: April Races

I'm so happy that Spring weather seems to have arrived. Even though I like running in cold weather, I was getting tired of bundling up for each run. I'm also looking forward to my Spring races, including two this month. 

I signed up for the BAA Distance Medley Series and the first race is the 5K on Sunday during Boston Marathon weekend. Last year I attended the Boston Marathon expo just as a spectator, so I'm looking forward to picking up my bib this year.


I'm also running the Newport 10 Miler at the end of month. I've only run one other race in Newport, back in 2011 with my husband. We ran across the Newport Pell Bridge and it is one of my best memories. I'm excited for this race because Newport has become one of my favorite places and I am hoping to better my ten mile time. 


Are you racing this weekend?

  5. The Boston expo is simply the best on the planet! I watched the 5k last year so I probably saw you go by! ; )

  6. I was just thinking about how it would be so great to just go to the Boston expo... maybe I'll have to plan it out better so I can go and then cheer! No racing for me this weekend, but 2 half marathons in a row the next two weeks. Good luck this weekend!!

  7. For all the years I've spectated Boston I have never been to the expo so I'm looking forward to going tomorrow. We've got the same 2 races this month - hope to see you at both :)

  19. Sounds like a fun April! The 10 mile length race sounds pretty cool; a little more than a 10k and a little less than a half....happy racing! My next race is the Seven Sisters Trail Race ( a 12 miler ) the first Sunday in May so April is just a training month for me!
