My inbox is being inundated with upcoming races and running events! And even if you are not a “racer” by nature, having something to train for is a great way to get you back on track!
The Big Gay 10K – 9/6/2014
This is just fun with a capital “F”. Put on your best costumes and come together at Golden Gate Park for a morning of rollicking fun, fitness, and community in support of the free, lifesaving programs and services of San Francisco AIDS Foundation. There’s a 10K, 5K and fun race so it’s great for everyone! Check it out here: www.biggay10K.com
The San Francisco Giant Race – 9/7/2014
Have fun in San Francisco and run a 5K, 10K and Half-Marathon. The race winds around the waterfront in SF and ends at AT&T Park where your SF Giants play!

Dipsea Hike/Run for Zero Breast Cancer – 9/13/2014
A “non-racing” event that raises money for breast cancer research. Hike or run this gorgeous trail that starts in Old Mill Park at the base of the Dipsea Stairs and takes you up the trails of Mt. Tam to the Mountain Home Inn then back down to the park. To sign up or find out more details visit their website www.dipsea.zerobreastcancer.org
Rock ‘n Roll 5K, 10K and Half Marathon – 10/4 and 10/5/2014
Flat. Fast. Fun. I’ve done this race twice and PR’d here so it holds a special place in my heart. This run has pace groups (always a good idea), a very fast course through downtown San Jose and the surrounding area. There’s some great neighborhood support and you can make a weekend out of it.

Honey Badger 5K, 10K and Half Marathon – 10/25/2014
I ran the 10K last year and LOVED it. China Camp is a lovely place to run. Full disclosure: there’s one long, but manageable hill. The 5K is great for walkers and hikers. Beer at the finish line. Need I say more? Go to their website to find out more http://www.sasquatchracing.com/the-honey-badger-half/
Ok, there are some races to get you started! I’ll add more later but I have to go teach!
Now go run!
