getting ready for a thanksgiving run ?!?! …
It’s only June and the registration for one of the most popular runs in Sacramento is open for registration. If your from Sacramento, you know and have heard or been part of the Run to Feed the Hungry. You can now register for the Thanksgiving run online at https://register.bazumedia.com/reg/form?event=hungry2011 . If you are new to the Sacramento area, this is one of the biggest and is the most attended run in the Sacramento area. If you are worried that close to 20,000 runners will be there and might get caught in a slow pack, don’t be. The race is well organized and draws some of the areas top runners as it is the final race of the Buzz Oates Run Sac Race Series. You have plenty of time to get registered but it doesn’t hurt to register early and get it out of the way. There is a 5k and 10k run for this event. The beauty of it is that you don’t have to decide which race you want to partake in until that morning. If you want to race the 5k line up for the 5k start, if you want to do the 10k, line up for the 10k start. You just cross the mat and the timing chips take care of everything else.
For today, my logged in my long run this morning. And these warmer mornings are getting a little old for me in Sacramento, and we just started hitting these temperatures this past week. 17 miles was the long run for me today, it is just weeks away from the SF Marathon, and my excitement is starting to build up. The long run for this week was pushed to today, rather than Saturday is because this Saturday I will be running in the 5k Foot Pursuit which is part of the Buzz Oates Run Sac Race Series. My pace for today was pretty good but still comfortable, I completed the 17 miles in just over two hours and ten minutes.
Since 3 days of strength workouts have already been completed this week, there is no strength work for the remainder of this week. The only thing left is a couple of runs plus the 5k Foot Pursuit on Saturday to complete this week of running and training. I have been posting some good links to running articles through twitter so make sure you keep up by following @chrismalenab.
