Welcome to Race Linkup, a monthly linkup opening on the last Monday of every month and staying open for four weeks. Link your race schedule so everyone can see who else will be at the next race and we can arrange meet-ups with other bloggers and our readers. You can link up your race schedule every month or only when you register for an additional race – you choose how often you want to get your schedule out there for other runners to see. I’d love to have you link up, and if you do, please remember to follow my six simple rules.


My husband Bill and I have been planning for several years to return to our old stomping ground in Utah, and have decided that 2018 is the year we’re going to finally make the trip. We’ll fly into Salt Lake City, head north to Wyoming for a few days to revisit both Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons where we spent our honeymoon so many years ago. We’ll time it so I can run the Grand Teton Half Marathon before we head back south to explore the National Parks in Southern Utah.


On my radar, but not officially on my racing calendar, is the Utah Valley Half Marathon on June 9th. Perhaps we can plan two days in Provo on our drive back north to SLC after our Southern Utah excursion and I can run the race the day before flying back home. Our itinerary is still up in the air, but that could be a possibility!


June 2 – Grand Tetons Half Marathon – Jackson, WY
June 9 – Utah Valley Half Marathon – Provo Canyon, UT (only on my radar at this point)
July 4 – Firecracker 5K – Reston Town Center, Reston, VA
November 22 – Ashburn Farm Thanksgiving Day 5K – Crossroads UMC, Ashburn, VA


  • Questions:
  • How far in advance do you plan your racing calendar?
  • Have you started looking at your 2018 race schedule?
  • Are you running any of the races I have on my schedule? 


Hope to see you at a race!
