Next race will be a 10k run in the nice city of Brugge (Bruges) the 12th of december.
I participated last year in this race and really liked the nice setting. It’s running in an almost medieval setting with Christmas decorations everywhere.
The organization could be better, because there are quite a few narrow streets and the start is just *pang* … EVERYONE STARTS RUNNING.
With a growing popularity and more than 2300 starting for the 10k (there’s a 6k as well), this means bottlenecks all over the course.
Last year I managed to speed up in the start so this didn’t bother me and I even got a PR out of it last year. (More of that in a later post)
This year they will be adding a first wave for the first 150 finishers from last year and being #86 myself this means a more comfortable start.
I hope pinching off a few seconds of my PR set last year and ending (just) below 39:30.
My heart already gets pumping only writing about it. 😉

Do you have any races planned in the near future? Tell me!
Disorganized starts with lack of wave/corral starts is starting to ruin races for me that I previously loved!! Urgh! Why does everyone have to know now that racing is awesome! LOL!
My next race is in San Antonio, TX on Dec 7! It will cross off state #10 of my quest to run all 50 US states!
I love races and I love a lot of people are starting to run, but not in the one race I picked out, haha.
Good luck to you on the 7th. Already a fifth down the road!
Oh yes, I love HUGE races…i just need everyone to be behind me! Lol!
