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.


I’ve recently removed two races from my fall race calendar – both October races. Neither the Freedom’s Run Half Marathon in Shepherdstown, WV on October 6th nor the Assault On Molly’s Knob – Extreme 5K in Marion, VA on October 13th are going to work out this year. I’d love to run the Molly’s Knob race next fall if the timing works better for us to make the trip to SWVA.


So unless any other races pop up on my radar, here’s where you’ll find me the rest of this year…

November 22 – Ashburn Farm Thanksgiving Day 5K – Ashburn, VA
December 2 – Run With Santa 5K – Reston, VA


  • Questions:
  • Do you ever get all gung-ho about a race until you look at the logistics and then decide not to run it?
  • Local runners:  do you recommend any races that I must try?
  • Are you running any of the races I have on my schedule? 


Hope to see you at a race!
