Races this weekend? Posted: Thu Aug 24, 2006 7:49 pm 

I'm running the Bulldog 25k mountain race on Saturday, my first, 2nd annual race ever. I ran it in 3:08 last year, and I'm shooting for 2:50 this go-round. It's a tough, steep trail, and the temps reached 106 last year, so I'll see how it all turns out!

Anyone else hitting the roads/trails for a race this weekend?

I am running the Chicago Half Marathon this weekend, October 1st.
I will use it as a training run for the Marathon and try to run my goal pace for the marathon...

106 degrees?? Man, I think I'd hit the shade and drink a beer if it ever reached that temperature for a race. :-)

Good luck to you both. I didn't know Chicago had a half-marathon. Is it part of the "official" Chicago Marathon, or a separate event?

I'm doing the Wineglass Marathon near Rochester NY this Sunday, October 1. It'll be challenging, since my training has been weaker than for most of my previous marathons. I'm hoping I can squeak under 3:30!

Thank you rickshaw
It is seperate from the Marathon, actually a different bank sponsors it. They usually go 3 weeks out from the marathon so people can use it as a training or tune-up run.
It is very organized and a great course down South Lake Shore Drive and starts and finishes at the Museum of Science and Industry.

This will be my 4th one, I think.

Good luck mrbill! I'll live vicariously through you guys, while I cool my heels for a while...

Hope your race was a blast, mrbill! None for me this weekend, but in 2 weeks, I'm running the Ridgecrest 50k as a training run for my January 50 miler.

How've you been, Rickshaw?

Since the Wineglass Marathon on October 1, I've run just three times, for a total of 11 miles. So I guess you could say I'm taking it easy! The urge to train has left me for now, but I'll probably get back into it over the winter or spring.
