Who knows…. Maybe it’s because I just completed my first marathon. Maybe it’s because the Olympics have got me all excited about being “active.” Or, maybe it’s because I just realized that bathing suit season is just around the corner. Whatever the reason, I’ve got running on the brain. So here’s a list of 12 local races you just might find me running. Anyone care to join me?
