On Saturday June 2nd I'm running the Fontana Days 5K, a super-fast course east of Los Angeles. Then I'll head out along the coast to Santa Barbara, where I'll be racing the State Street Mile on June 3rd.
I have family in SoCal, so I'll get to run some fast, competitive races and hang out with my relatives for a weekend. A win-win situation!
I cannot tell you how excited I am to run a one-mile road race. I'm really committed to working on my speed this spring/summer, and this will be a good chance to test my progress.
This pair of races will be a great tune-up for our biggest races of the summer - the Portland Track Festival and USA Half-Marathon Championships (which are the following two weekends). And yep - Andrea and I are both going to be traveling 3 weeks in a row (actually 4 for Andrea)... I think its time that we finally buy tablet computers!
We are running a 5K in Provo this upcoming weekend, then the focus will shift to training, training, and more training during the rest of May.
