I've been a busy race registering squirrel!

In my boredom in Norway, I've decided to register for a few road races.  They are:

  • Running With The Wolves 10K in Marlborough, MA on July 28th @ 6:30PM
  • Loco Moose 5K in Concord, NH on August 29th @ 10AM
  • Disney World 5K in Orlando, FL on January 7th, 2011 @ 7AM
Apparently this year's Old Home Day in Barnstead has been canceled due to lack of interest or some such nonsense, so I will unfortunately not be able to run that race. :(  I've replaced it with the Loco Moose 5K in Concord, which is a "flat & fast" race.  With the August heat, I am only mildly concerned about how that race will turn out.  I'll simply have to start training in the hotter weather when I get back from Norway.

I've also signed up for a 10K which is making me a bit nervous. I know that I run at least 10K once a week during my regular training week, but I'm not sure I can complete it in any sort of competitive time.  I think I'll just have to settle for finishing it and not aim for a goal time. 

The Disney 5K is six months away but I'm already excited.  I think it's going to be my first real vacation! I'm planning on visiting the parks, and hopefully the new Harry Potter park.  I think participants also get a goody bag for participating and there are seminars about training.  All in all, it should be a lot of fun and I'm greatly looking forward to it.
