I have barely taken a breath from Ironman Boulder and the EPIC Relay and yet strangers on the street keep asking me, “What’s next?”
What’s next is a lot of resting, sleeping, eating and wine consuming. There will be the occasional run, bike and swim thrown in there, but nothing too crazy.
Truthfully, there has been a lot of this going on.
I am not sure the kids know what to do with a non-moving mother.
I do, however, like having a plan an some structure to my training. I find it really motivates me…
So, what is up next is the Runner’s World Half and Festival in October (18th and 19th). I will be doing the Hat Trick. That means I’ll do a 5K and a 10K on Saturday and a half marathon on Sunday. All of this will be done in the scenic town of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania (the birth place of Jesus – oops nope wrong Bethlehem).
Actually, I have no clue if Bethlehem is scenic, but I think any little town in Pennsylvania in October with leaves changing and crisp temperatures should be pretty nice. And, in case you have been living under a rock, Bethlehem is the headquarters for Runner's World, some little magazine about our sport.
So…I’m signing up, how about you? I love that you get three medals, a shirt, a hat and socks. I am a lover of swag. My friend Kathy just told me what SWAG stands for. Do you know? I actually think I forgot.

Keep in mind there are also kid runs and a dog run on Saturday. Quite the family event, yet I will be Ken-less and child-less that weekend.
Have you done the Runner’s World Half or one of the races before?
