We're continuing to add new people, which is exciting. Even more exciting? There's starting to be a little overlap in the races people are doing. I was hoping that would happen!
Katie from Legally Fit Katie and Jen from Jen is Green are both doing the Mohawk Hudson Half, although they already know each other. Kellie from Running Rodeo and Linz from Destination 26.2 are both running in the Nike Women's Marathon. Ruth from Running It Off and Kelly from Maxi Fortend are both running the Monster Dash Half Marathon. Finally, both Allie from The Constant Pursuit and Meggan from Marathon Running Mama are both doing the Philadelphia Marathon.
This past week, several people ran races. Click the links for their race reports. Jen from Jen is Green ran a 10K, Becka from 50 Half Marathons in 50 States ran her latest (very tough) half marathon. Julie at Julie's Running Blog ran a 5K with her daughter and Kate from Run with Kate ran an 8 mile race!
The long runs are still increasing for lots of folks. Molly at I'm a Sleeper Baker tackled 19 miles, Olivia at Blissful Runner took on 18. Nicki from Nicki's Nook, Lisa at Lisa's Yarns and myself all tackled 17 this past weekend. Erika at Chasing my Monkeys One Mile at a Time took on 15 and Linz at Destination 26.2 conquered 14. Rene at The Amherst Shuffle is at a long run of 12 miles We're all getting there!
Aneta at Confessions of a Rambunctious Runner is back to running with no pain and feeling good. Heather's (The Crazy World of a Running Mom) few days off did the trick and she was able to run her 10 mile long run this past weekend. Raquel from Historiadora on the Run is also getting back to a running schedule after moving and returning from her honeymoon.
Caro at Calinchen Runs has the first week of marathon training completed and has some new shoes to start out week two of training. Chris from Evolving Through Running stayed on track with runs while on vaction. Jon from SwiCyclorun is still getting in some great training for his next triathlon (later this month) before shifting gears toward his marathon training. Ann at Sole Sisters is starting to feel a little nervous for her next approaching half, but I'm sure she'll be ready!
Make sure to wish Mindy at the Road to Becoming a Runner and Allie at The Constant Pursuit good luck at their races this weekend! Mindy is doing her next 5K and Allie is heading to her next half marathon!
