Because of the ridiculous weather we have been experiencing (fourth straight rainy weekend) some of the races we normally run have been cancelled. To balance out the schedule our running club has eliminated other races. Long story short our last race was the Track Classic 3K we ran a week and half ago. We usually run the Father's Day 4 Miler in June. It used to be a free a race with our membership. Since they removed it from the competitive schedule, we now have to pay to run it. Let me tell you running with your significant other is great for your relationship...not so great for your wallet. Every race we want to do costs us twice as much. Hubby and I decided to forego the Father's Day event. This means we have no race until July 4th's Peachtree Road Race. This is a long break for us. I love running, so it is not that I lack motivation to get out and run, but the regular racing was like keeping your engine in peak shape. You knew you would at least take the car out for a real test drive every couple of weeks. Now I have to find that same competitive drive during some of my regular runs. On the other hand it does mean a lot more Saturdays where I can sleep in.
