Planning ahead

With my marathon coming up at the end of the month, I'm already starting to look ahead for some inspiration. I'm contemplating these races, and probably some others. I should try to do at least one every month or so, even if it is a short one like a 5k or 10k.

August: Run Thru Hell (10 mile)
September: The Runner's Edge Trail Half Marathon (my first half-marathon ever, done last year - I want to shave another 5 minutes or more off my current PR)
October: Chicago Marathon (26.2, silly)

This leaves a lot of open time - I might add the Cereal City Classic (10k), the Run to Climax (7k?), or the Fifth Third River Bank Run (25k). The River Bank run is only a couple of weeks after the marathon - but then again, I am certain that I could do a 20 mile run tomorrow, and I ran close to a marathon two weeks ago. I wouldn't win any prizes, but I would finish.

I regret that I never did the "run through hell" when I lived in Michigan. It sounded like a cool race.

Good luck with tapering for your marathon.
