Tempo Run and Race Schedule

Busy day at work, but thankfully it didn't run long. Strapped on the racing flats and hit the streets for a tempo run that went really well. Felt great and while the pace was work, it came relatively easily. Just felt like I was on working cruise control, the way a good tempo run should go.

I also have my race schedule mapped out through fall. I will likely throw in a couple of 5Ks in here as well, but those are TBD. But here's what I got:

May 29 - Pineland Farms 50-Miler
July 10 - Bradbury Scuffle 6-Mile Trail Race
July 31 - Brookvale 50K
August 14 - Bradbury Breaker 9-Mile Trail Race
September 11 - Bradbury Bruiser 12-Mile Trail Race
October 16 - Mt. Desert Island Marathon

That's a pretty ambitious schedule for me, but I feel everything is spaced out enough for the most part and it's doable. Really looking forward to every event, especially the Brookvale 50K. It's on Prince Edward Island and Kate and I will both be going (she's running the 25K). I've only been out of the country once when I went to Niagra Falls with family for the day, and that was over 15 years ago. This will be a real treat and a pretty epic adventure for me, so I'm stoked!

Ran 6.0 miles @ 6:38/mile pace.
Paved roads.
Slightly hilly.
Mid 50s, overcast, misting and light rain throughout.
Brooks Mach 11, shorts, short sleeved shirt, cap.
