Let’s talk races.

I may be barely running but my race schedule says something different. I have 3 races in the next 5 weeks. 3! 5 weeks! Two of them are half marathons! All 3 have trail! 2 have pretty good climbs but all 3 have dirt! I love dirt!
First up is a 10K down in Agua Dulce that I love but it will kick my butt. It’s hard. Third up is a half marathon down in the desert… at night. I’ve been looking forward to it for years but I am trying to not get too excited as I may have puppy care problems. I have a back up plan for that though, I will be bummed but it’s life, right?
However, let’s talk about race#2! I’m heading north for the Marin Endurance Festival on Halloween weekend. There is so much going on that weekend. Saturday is the triathlon and duathlon events. I almost want to find a bike! But let’s be real, I wasn’t good at riding a bike when I was a kid, I really wouldn’t be now. I am disaster prone enough on my own.
Sunday is for the running. A half, a 10k and a 5k. All the fun kicks off at McNear’s Beach. The race website says there are 7 miles road and 6ish trail. So my big question now- what kind of shoes do I wear? Seriously, I am not joking- trail or road? I need to recon this trail.
What are your future race plans?
Oh, and if you want to join, you can save with code BRPRO10.
And seriously, what kind of shoes?

Wow. That’s a lot of races coming up. And two HMs?! Sorry, I can’t help you on the shoe issue. Do you know anyone who has run the race before that you could consult with? I know this might be a really silly question, but does “trail” really mean in the woods over roots on dirt or could it possibly be a paved, crushed gravel trail?

I can’t find any reviews of the race but have looked into the trail. Half seems like fire road and the other half rocky. I think I may be taking my chances with my road shoes. I don’t think I can manage 7 miles on road in my trail shoes.

I totally understand. Hope it works out for you.
