On the RUN with UNR - Our new and improved blog!
Okay, so we’re now training for the Bourbon Chase in Kentucky. A nice 200 mile 12-person relay. And yours truly will be trying my best not to embarrass the team. My physical ailments are slowing me down. But I’m still enjoying the run. These late Summer/early Fall days are really nice for running. I’ve been switching my routes. And on occasion, doing some trails. As the farmers always tell me; Make Hay while the sun shines! So hopefully, we’ve got a lot more sun-shiny days ahead!
These 200-mile relay races are just one of the many races/runs coming this Fall. Lots of really neat events coming up:
In the North Pittsburgh area the races include:
PALS 5K Run/Walk for Education – Saturday, October 3, 2:00 pm in Saxonburg, PA - If you’ve ever run the Saxonburg Festival of the Arts 5K, you’ll love this race. It all takes place on the Saxony Farm. In my opinion, the prettiest place to hold a race! Hope you can make it! Contact: 412-793-5884
