In honor of my first race over the weekend (Quarter Marathon in the Cap City Half), I am now making an effort to participate in one race per month in Columbus until the Columbus Marathon where I plan to do my first half marathon. A great perk of living in the city, most of the races start or finish right at my front door!
Here’s my monthly race list for the Summer.
Unfortunately, I’ll be out of town this weekend but I encourage anyone with a dog to participate in this 5k. It’s for a great cause and looks like a blast.
2) Columbus 10K
Considered “The Oldest Road Race in Columbus”.
This has to be one of the most fun races I’ve ever heard of. My niece actually told me about it and after I looked it up, I couldn’t say no! Running around the city getting color thrown all over sounds like the best Saturday morning in the Summer!
4) Dog Jog
Another dog friendly race throughout downtown Columbus. Since Jaxson and I can’t make it to the Rescue Run, we will have to put this on our calendars.
There is a cap of 7k marathoners and 11k 1/2 marathoners and event sells out each year. I hope to work on my training before this and make it through the 1/2 marathon!
Are you going to be running any races this Summer?
