Fall: RCC Run the Woods, Earlham, IA. My review of last year's race: RCC Run the Woods Mini-Review This race has been an end of the year event the last two years and has also given me a chance to introduce two of my kids to racing distances longer than 5K. It is a small, out of the way race with great food, cool schwag, and a pretty hard course. Hoping this year to run it for my own time and see my kids improve upon prior years if they join me! Probable, the beef stew and pumpkin cake, both from the Iowa Machine Shed, make the long trip for a short race all the more worth it! http://www.rccgenes.com/Run.html
Fall/Winter: Capital Striders Sycamore 8, Des Moines, IA. I looked into this race last year and have had a couple of people mention it. Not sure about the time of year with weather and the busyness of the Christmas season, but it sounds like a race that might be fun to try. Probable, but it will definitely need to fit our schedule. Maybe I can get one of the kids to race it with me? http://www.capitalstriders.org/events/#capital-striders-races
Well, there it is. Some new races, some old races. Maybe there will even be a few that I didn't think of, and maybe some of these won't work out. I will have to leave the future in God's hands and simply prepare my best for what comes! And...I need to make sure it's all okay with my wife! :)
Addendum: Was just made a Bib Rave Pro last week. So, might be a few changes in some races, or some different additional races, just have to see how the schedule works out for everything.
