While the snow keeps coming down, you may be tempted to stay inside and slow down the workouts. But if you’re looking for some motivation, I’ve got a few races you should hear about!!
1. Grand On The Go 5k: April 21st, St. Paul, MN. I ran this race in 2011 with a few girlfriends when it was a part of the Grand Ole Day celebration, this year it has changed and is now part of the Wellness Weekend on Grand Ave. What a great way to kick off getting a little healthier! Also, I’m sure Whole Foods will have some great treats!
2. We Walk! Marathon, Half, and 50k May 18, 2013, Melorse/St. Joseph, MN. I found out about this race yesterday while googling “walk a marathon” so if my knee continues to be a jerk…this is a race I will probably look into!
3. Sour Grapes, June 8, 2013, Brainerd, MN. I am so bummed that I have a commitment on this day, because otherwise I would be volunteering or participating. This race was originally created to allow people who didn’t get into the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon (Grandma’s Half) Lottery still have a race to run!
I was not paid to share about these races, but feel that they are all unique and wanted to give them a little shout out!
