Local Races To Love



This one’s going to be short and sweet.

Since I’m new to the area, I have nothing to report on here!


Washington DC/Virginia

I have a dream to someday be fast enough to sign up for the Cherry Blossom 10-Miler.

While I knew I’d be here for it, I also knew I wouldn’t make the time cut off so I didn’t enter the lottery. However, I did get into the lottery for the 5K. Which is right where I need to be at this point anyway.


I’m just not sure I’ll be able to run it. My dang IT band isn’t loving me right now, and my C25K program has taken a small break. #WhompWhomp

Could it happen in 2 weeks? Probably. But I’m trying to stay out of PT for the next 6 months, so I’m going to just see how things are feeling over the next couple of days.


I am obsessed with these blossoms. Ob. Sessed.

Sounds like most survived the cold and snow, so we’re planning on hitting the monuments by the Tidal Basin this week. Fingers are crossed that I get a view like this one soon!



What races did I like in Arizona? I enjoyed the Phoenix Marathon (I ran the half) weekend a lot.

If you are looking for a well supported slightly downhill race with fantastic weather in Arizona: this is your PR, folks!

Any folks run DC recently who have recommendations for races? Shout them out!

Patty is a 40-ish mother of four living in Virginia. A bit geeky, sometimes sarcastic, lover of a candid confession. She's trying to love running, she swears. But much like her marathon, it’s taking a very long time. Ahem. She's searching for the perfect way to balance family, work, travel, and fitness. Perfect defined as high on fun, low on guilt.
