Time to Run and Compete!
DAD'S FUN RUN has been POSTPONED until October!
Alright, I am back to running and exercise events that are coming up in the next couple of days and weeks for TEAM DIRTYRED!  We have been training and I think we are ready to get into some running competitions!  The next big event for the San Diego team is the America's Finest City 1/2 marathon, August 21st.  If you have been keeping up with my posts, this is an event that I have blogged about on several occasions.   This will be my 4th time running this event and mile 10 is the mile that will make or break you.  The course is a pretty decent course with ups, downs and flat running areas.  At mile 10, there is definitely an elevation change and if you have not trained your legs to be strong enough for this event, it will take you to another level that's NOT FUN!

Then there is the Solana Beach Du and Tri Event July 24th! This is a great cross training event for endurance runners and a nice start to those thinking to become a triathlete! For me, I compete against myself every year because as I get older, I try and get better and stay in shape! I believe that you need at least one event to measure your speed/endurance level each year.  It's fun and there are a lot of great people out there to compete with!

July 3rd is the Freedom 5 Mile in Leroy, Indiana! Some of our Indiana members will be heading out to this event and make some other runs cry! We still claim some strong ultra marathoners and marathoners out there with Misty and her buddies.  This event is part of the Crazy Legs Race Series! You can learn more by joining them on FACEBOOK and typing in "Crazy Legs Race Series".  

Here are some other events we will be getting involved in.  Join us!
