Weekly RunDown #163

“You must have a training routine so that what you do happens automatically. If I got up in the morning and thought about going for a run there would often be a number of possible arguments against it. The thing is to get out and run. 
Later you can wonder whether you should have or not.”
Robert de Castella

Here is my training overview for week #21 as I have a rest period prior to getting back at it for Boston in April and The Dirty Kanza 200 gravel race the end of May.'s This Week in Running: Nov 4, 2019

Local, to Kentucky, Races and Events
(If you have a race in the area, including surrounding states, let me know and I will post about it)

Running groups are a great way to get to know people but also a great way to help you progress and get out and run.  If you are in the Elizabethtown KY area check out the Running Soles Group and if you are closer to Campbellsville check out the Campbellsville Running  Club.  There is now a running group starting over in Burkesville, for info check out their FB Page- Burkesville Running Club.  Have another local running group in KY let me know and I will list it.

Check out these Race Companies for local races: Good Times Even Services & Central Kentucky Race Management.  For trail and Ultra races in Kentucky and Virginia check out Next Opportunity Events

If you cannot make it out for a Thanksgiving Day race or need one closer to Campbellsville, KY then check out the Run for Campbellsville 5K/10K on November 23, 2019

Want to do a fun race before you dig into the days festivities then how about the Pilgrimage in the Park at Pulaski County Park in Nancy Kentucky on November 28, 2019. Did it last year but will be out of town this year but highly recommend this one. Great trails and great people.
