I hate racing. I love it but every single time that I race, I come home and want to register for another race. It does get expensive after that 3rd registration in a weekend…
I did that after Robie Creek. I come home all amped on race energy and I registered for the Race for Hearts. And after the Idaho Potato Marathon I registered for TWO races.
First one is the XC12K. I did this one the last couple years and registration finally opened up. I don’t know how I will feel about doing this race when it happens. I am planning on a mondo vacay with the boy ALL OF JULY and I don’t know how much running I will be doing ALL OF JULY. So, I think come August 2nd, this race is going to HURT.

The second race that I signed up for is the Spirit of the Magic Valley 5k. I have never done a race in Twin Falls. I have been itching to do one there for a while. I asked the new boy if he wanted to go and he gave the green light. Whoot!

So far, only 22 people have signed up for the 5k. I love smaller races! My chances are even better for placing in my AG. 🙂
Do you have any advice for NOT signing up for races? I’ve gotten my running groove back and want to run a race every weekend now!
