Fun Summer Runs in Seattle

Sun in Seattle makes me want to run!  I am so excited for the following local runs.  Check them out and register if you are free.  There is plenty of time to train if needed!

Girls on the Run of Pudget Sound 5K- I am so excited for this run on Saturday, May 19th.  I will be a running buddy to one of the GOTR girls who has been training for a few months to run a 5K.  The run takes place at Seward Park and will be very fun with a super hero theme and extremely inspirational.

Rock n' Roll Half-Marathon Seattle- My favorite run in Seattle!  The race takes place on Saturday, June 23rd.  Saturday races are great because you have a day to recover!  It definitely gets your adrenaline going and I love the vibe of the race.  Thousands of people run through Seattle and there is a band at each mile plus a concert at the end.  Check out my blog on half-marathon training if you need some guidance.

See Jane Run Seattle- I've never done this race, but it looks awesome and all proceeds go to breast cancer research and prevention.  I like the fact that you have an option of doing a 5K or a half-marathon as well.  It starts at Gas Works Park (great location) at 8am on Sunday, 7/15.  You can also get your kids involved by having them participate in the one mile kids race.
