But now that MDI is in my sights, a little over 2 weeks now (deep breaths), I am starting to feel that it's okay to do other races again. I'm thinking I must be making up for lost time because here is my October racing schedule. YES, I AM CRAZY!
October 8th - Tufts 10K (compliments of FitFluential and Reebok)
October 14th - MDI Marathon
October 21st - Bond Brook TreadFest - 5 miler
Am I crazy for signing up for the Tufts 10k? Why yes, I am. I know it. But after consulting my running gurus (Ward and Wade), I will use this race as my last speed work before MDI. I'll be in taper
Then, even crazier, I am going to do the Bond Brook TreadFest. Ward is going to do this race and has worked with the director to have a teams division. I wasn't planning on running this race at all. Actually, I was going to volunteer, but he wants the teams division to be a success, so I put together a team. I promise you, this is going to be a slow run for me. I may end up crawling through the woods, but at least I'll be part of a team of lovely ladies.

Now that I have three races in a row, I need to update my playlist. I was at a loss for songs, but then it came to me. I work in a high school. So I asked some of the girls in my advisor group and they came up with a list of songs for me. Now I need to get working on adding the songs to my playlist.
Although, while I'm typing this, I just remembered that music/earbuds is not allowed for the Bond Brook race. Safety issues. I get that. No biggie. I'll use my new playlist for the first two races.
What's your race schedule like? Who do you turn to for playlist updates?
