October 27th: Wicked Halloween Run - 10K

Phew!  I think that's all of them.  It may seem like a lot but I'm using them as training for my marathon.  For example, the day I have the Detroit Women's Half I'm scheduled to run 12 miles.  13 is close enough.  Same with the Porcupine Mountains half.  The day of the Brooksie Way I'm scheduled for 20.  After I cross the finish line I'll do an out-and-back down the the course to make up the last 7 miles.  People will still be racing so I'll have crowd support and other runners.  Not a bad way to get my 20 in for the day!

What upcoming races do you have on your calendar?
