What's the plan, Stan?

Miles for Markie wasn't in the cards for me. I had foot pain and swelling for a week after the golf course race (thank you downhills) and then got sick. So I have revamped my race schedule. On paper it's looking like two in April, three in May and two in June. :0

The Frosty Four- DONE
The Snowshoe-less Classic- DONE
Olde Salem Greene Cross Country- DONE

Up Next:
April 22- Ring Around the Neck 5 miler
April 29- Salem State Wellness Fair 5k

May 5- Fast Chicks 5k
May 13- Patrick Downey 5k
May 29- Fueled By Fitness 5k

June 2- Ricey's Run
June24 NSMC Cancer Run

I also have a flex race built in just in case. The Rockport Father's Day 5/10k. I am actually thinking about the 10k option for this one if I can be consistent with my running.

I have a packed schedule for a few reasons. The first is that I want to get the donation to the Fitzgerald family as soon as possible to help them kick childhood cancer's ass. They have plans in the works. :) The second is that I think it's fitting to end with a race that is raising money to forward cancer treatment and research.

I may not be the fastest runner out there, but what I lack in speed I make up for in determination. Thanks for following my journey. :)
