Well, things are back to being uncertain for racing and public events, which fills me with all kinds of unpleasant anxiety. My current operating agenda is to make plans, but also to be flexible, so here is how I hope and plan to fill my race calendar.
2021 Tunnel To Towers 5K – September 11
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the horrific 9/11 attacks, and Mr PugRunner asked if I would join him for this event. It’s a wonderful cause and I am grateful to help him support this.
Dreams Come True 5K – September 28
I’m not 100% sure I will be able to run this race, but I do plan to have some hand in it, whether I’m a participant or a volunteer. This 5K benefits granting wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses, and promises to be a beautiful and inspiring event.
Pink Up The Pace 5k – October 2
Pink Up The Pace is our local breast cancer fundraising run. Proceeds from this event go directly to early prevention and detection services. It’s a wonderful group, doing so much good in the St. Augustine area. I am very hopeful to be there.
GOTRNEFL Noodle Run – October 2
Yes, you read that correctly: two races on the same day. Pink Up the Pace is a morning 5K, and this inaugural Noodle Run is an evening 5k/10k, to benefit Girls on the Run of Northeast Florida. It is brought to run by Noodles & Company, and will feature a post-race noodle tasting, so…. Yes. I’m up for this new event.
BDR Safety Harbor Triple Challenge – October 16 + 17
I know. This is crazy. What kind of person would take on a 5K, 10K AND Half Marathon in two days? I’m sure it will be tons of fun, especially since this race is totally new to me, as well. Best Damn Race always put on one heck of a good time, so I’m ready to be a part of it! Want to join? Save 10% off any BDR distance in any BDR city with code RUNSWITHPUGS
