Happy running season!

Well, I suppose it’s always running season, but when cooler weather approaches (it’s so close I can feel it) I enjoy it so much more!

My question is, who’s running what this fall? I know there are quite a few folks running the Army 10-Miler, and I’m sure there are more than a few marathoners. Not to mention all the fall 5K and 10K races… so post below and list your races and goals and be sure to post back here with your running news after the fact, too.

Here, I’ll start:
Sunday: Parks Half Marathon, goal: 12:30 pace
Oct. 5: Army 10-Miler, goal: 11:30 pace
Nov. 1: Jug Bay 10K (PDF), goal: 11:00 pace

ALSO: If you’re on Facebook, please feel free to join the new PGRC group!

  1. Hi all,
    I’m running the Marine Corps marathon (my first!). I’m planning on doing a 15-mile long run on Saturday morning (9/10ish). I run around a 10 minute/mile pace. If anyone is interested, email me. I’d love some company!

  2. Here are the races on my fall list; hopefully I’ll make it to all of them. Most are part of the MCRRC race series. Not sure my goal times yet. For the half marathon on Saturday, finishing is my only goal. Sub 8:00 pace for road 5Ks. I’ll have a better idea once I start running more races.

    Nov 8 – Candy Cane City 5K in Kensington

  5. I’m focused on getting my butt off the sofa and back on the treadmill. Seriously, between school and work, I’ve not done any serious running since spring. But tonight I got on the treadmill for 45 minutes and I wasn’t huffing and puffing!

    I’m thinking of doing the Wright Stuff 5K in December, and I want to focus on getting my time under 40 minutes.

  6. Karen — good job! Get back at it. The Wright Stuff would be a great race to train for. Also, there will be 5K and 10K training programs starting up soon with the club (if you can make it out on the weekend). There will be more information posted soon about these programs, so keep an eye to the site and/or e-mail!

    Nicole, good luck at your first marathon! 🙂

    Man, PGRCers are busy folks!

  7. My next goal is to do the Charm City United Way 5K in Baltimore on 10/11, join the 5K training program run by Valerie, and do a run in Watkins Park on 11/15 and then the Write Stuff one in December.

    Meanwhile, My kids are now interested in running and I found a really cook kids running program called Marathon Kids (Baltimore) http://www.marathonkids.org and plan to start a kids running group this fall to support my kids in their goal.

    They are doing the kids fun run in Baltimore too!
    Thanks again to the beginners program it was excellent!

  8. I too am running the College Park cares 5k.
    I have to, I’m the course director.

    Note: We need more teams! Currently we have two…. Care to field one, PGRC?

  9. Kim –

    Thanks for the vote of confidence! But just to be clear, I wasn’t running for the entire 45 minutes… ; D

  10. Hi all. I just hope to make it through the Army 10-miler on October 5. My goal is an 11:00 pace. After that, I’ll start thinking about running a half-marathon. :o)
