Baltimore 10-miler

by - Tuesday, May 20, 2008

I registered for the race this morning at exactly 10:01. One minute after registration officially opened. (Paranoid about the 2,000 runner limit much?)

The Baltimore 10-miler is a brand new race in the city of Baltimore, which is one of my favorite cities to race in. It starts and ends at the zoo, which I think is kind of cool. And it's put on by Corrigan sports, the same people that do the Baltimore Marathon (bit of nostalgia here for my first big race.)

Because I loved the Baltimore marathon so much, this race seemed like a no-brainer. It also helped the you get a sweet polar fleece instead of a race t-shirt. Niiiice! (You know I love my schwag!)

Also they have race day packet pick up, which rocks because I won't be able to get down there Friday after work to do it the day before.

This means I am officially back in training as of today. Too bad the six mile run I'm going to have to do after work is most likely going to be in the rain. Curses!

The race is only four weeks away so training will be a bit abbreviated, but I'm not too worried. I haven't been that lazy after the half marathon, I've just been haphazard with frequency and distances run.

My plan is to modify Hal Higdon's Intermediate 15K plan. When I have all the kinks worked out, I'll be sure to post the official training schedule.

P.S. If anyone else is thinking of running this race, let me know!

  10. It wasn't too expensive...it was $50, which is $15 less than I paid for my half last month and the race is only three miles shorter hehe
