Fall Race Line Up

With summer just about halfway over, I could not be more excited for “fall” to make it’s appearance meaning a tad bit of cooler weather here in Florida. Noticed my key word “tad” the cooler weather doesn’t hit till end of November (if we are lucky), December and January. I’ve come to the conclusion that only us runners here in Florida truly appreciate the colder weather. Cooler weather means fall/winter/early spring races!

The ladies of the Tuesdays on the Run link up are talking about their fall race schedule for this weeks topic. Surprisingly enough I really don’t have much lined up yet for the fall.

I am currently registered for a FREE, non-timed 10K event called, Run for the Fallen. I participated in this race last year and I could not believe the production and turn out for the event. This annual run is hosted by the Tampa Area Marine Parents Association (T.A.M.P.A) to honor all the of the fallen Floridian servicemen and women.The association’s ultimate goal is to have enough participants each year to represent each fallen hero in the state of Florida.

While I am currently not registered for much else, I am hoping to kick my training into gear this fall for a winter half marathon – still to be determined. In the meantime, I am looking into some virtual runs to keep my training exciting. I’ve heard Gone for a Run has some good virtual races and the past medals look pretty cool

  1. I could never live in Florida! I barely survive the Virginia summers, which are nearly as hot, but don’t last as long. Good luck figuring out your winter half marathon! I ran Jacksonville last winter and it was pretty awesome.

    1. Thanks Melanie, yes a completely free event! While it’s not timed it’s well worth the participation. Former soldiers and marines will dress in their uniforms and run the event with us ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve never really participated in a virtual run before so I am excited to see what some of the options will be.
