Happy day, y’all!!
Today, I’m talking all about my Fall racing schedule and a bonus!! My favorite Summertime Smoothie. Now, I’m not gonna lie. I just haven’t gotten on the whole make your own smoothie bandwagon. I know people love it, but I just am not ready to commit to it yet. But, that doesn’t mean I don’t love a good smoothie every once in a while. I just have to buy mine prepared for me.
So let’s jump in with what’s on my race agenda this Fall. It’s surprisingly bare which is not like me at all. Maybe I’m growing up?? I know Nick’s loving it. Less racing means more money in our bank account. September
Right now, I only have one race on my schedule for September: Race 13.1 Raleigh. Cara, Christine and I are headed back to Raleigh to run this one again. Cara and I are pacing the 2:15 group and Christine is along for the run with us! I’m most excited that they changed the course from last year and removed Lassiter Hill. It was this ridiculously huge hill the last .5 of the race. We may throw in a last minute race at the end of the month, depending on how we feel with our training. Salem Lake 30K and Triad 10 Miler are on my radar.
I celebrate half number 40 by pacing the local half marathon, Cannonball Half, with Cara. We’re in charge of the 2:30 group and I’m so looking forward to it. We have several friends who are running this race too! It’s a great local event and the changes that happened last year with the addition of the food trucks and post race brews made it super fun!
Mid-October? Marathon #7 at 7 Bridges Marathon in Chattanooga, TN. I’m so looking forward to this one. It’s going to be a great trip with friends. I’ve never been to Chattanooga so I’m interested in seeing the city while running the marathon. We’ve rented a cute little house and we’re staying within walking distance to a ton of restaurants and even a brewery. It will be a gorgeous course especially with the fall leaf colors.
The event of all events!! Crooked Road 24 hour Ultra! It’s by far my favorite race I do each year. I’m shooting for a 100K distance this year. I want it bad, but I also am realistic and know that so much depends on the weather and how I’m feeling. We have a ton of friends who are going to be out there too so it won’t be without fun!
I like that there isn’t too much on my schedule right now. I’m hoping to head up to Boone for some Appalachian Football games so I’ll work around those if I pick up any races.
Now, for the bonus!! It’s Summertime Smoothie time!
As I mentioned, my favorite smoothie comes prepared for me. It’s my favorite one and it’s actually a tough one to find. It is… Naked Protein & Greens! It’s the best of both worlds for me. I get the protein punch I need for after runs, but all the benefits of the greens. I’ve tried the Green Machine and it was just too “green” for me. This has just the right amount of sweetness to combat the earthiness of the all greens smoothie.
What race are you most excited about on your fall schedule? Do you make your own smoothies?
