Today is Friday! Which means I’ll be heading to Virginia Beach, VA for Shamrock Weekend (here is my Five Things Shamrock post). Today I am linking up with Mar, Courtney, and Cynthia and the theme is “Spring”. Given today is the first day of Spring, I thought it would be appropriate to share my Upcoming Spring Races post Shamrock.
1. Philadelphia LOVE Run Half Marathon
Home of my half marathon PR, I will be running the second edition of the race with my friend Rachel (my friends Nathasha and Emily will be there too). I am hoping there will be better weather this year, last year there was a downpour!
3. Cherry Blossom 10 Miler

Despite the crowds, the 2014 Cherry Blossom 10 Miler was one of my strongest races of the year. It looks like the race may align with peak bloom… so we may actually get to run the Cherry Blossom race under the Cherry Blossoms…what what?! I’ll also be volunteering at the expo for guaranteed entry for next year.
2. PR Trail Series Algonkian Park

In February I learned Potomac River Running hosts four free trail run series in the Spring/Summer. One of my goals this year is to run a trail race. While technically not a race, it should help me prepare for one. Now the question… should I run the 30 minute, 60 minute, or 90 minute option?
4. Manassas Runway 5K

Last month I shared this 5K as one of my Five Races to Run in 2015. It will be flat, and I look forward to running with Cliff.
5. St. Michaels Half Marathon
Two more months of training/conditions + a flat course = half marathon PR attempt for Jennifer. Fun Fact: the movie the Wedding Crashers was filmed in St. Michaels.
What is your next race?
Will I see you at any of the above racers?
