I'll be running the CDA Half Marathon on May 25. My longest training run to date has been 7.75 miles, so not really where I should be to hope to PR. I have been running roughly three times a week, and also trying to take a weight class and swim one day a week. But neither my distance nor intensity has really been up to par. I am going to be reasonable and aim to just finish and enjoy myself. But my husband says I have to beat his old boss, gulp!

I am also planning to run a 5 mile trail race on May 17, part of the State Park Series organized by Trail Maniacs. I'm really excited for this! My last trail race was a lot of fun, and Farragut State Park is gorgeous. Hopefully we'll do some extra exploring as a family afterwards.
Then I think I probably won't do a race again until September/October. We will be traveling off and on so I am just hoping to build consistency and speed and to enjoy our beautiful summer by spending as much time outdoors as possible.
What are your summer plans, running and otherwise?
