Snohomish River Run

Last nights workout:

Intervals!!! Woot!
3.01 miles in 30:42 (10:12 pace)

Dang this run felt fabulously sweaty. I ran while reading my book on my iPad. I ran hard for 4-6 pages of my book, then recovered at a 12 min pace for 2 pages. Super scientific approach to intervals. Woooo it felt great.

To all my Seattle-ish area peeps, this post is for you.

There is a new race in the area! The race is called the Snohomish River Run Half Marathon and 10k.

The race is on October 27 which makes it a great race for people running the Seattle Marathon/Half marathon. It could be a great ramp down week.

The course if a flat, fast course along the Snohomish River. And by flat, I mean FLAT! There is only 115 feet of elevation gain over the whole course of the half marathon. That is a rare treat in the Sea-Town area.

Awesome scenery AND a flat course?! Sign me up!

I’m thinking this may HAVE to be my 10k redemption race. My 1:13 “PR” can suck it! πŸ˜‰ Who else is down to get their race on?!

Sign up here before September 1st to be the entry fee increase!!

    Wow, thank you so much for sharing this! It is exactly the right timing for me since I was thinking of doing a half (it would be my first ever) in Portland on Oct 21 but that was starting to feel just a tiny bit too soon. This one could be perfect with one extra week to prepare.
