Kids running you ragged? Make them run a 5k

My oldest son wants to run a half marathon, I had to talk him down to a 5k. I had to talk his younger brother up to a 5k.

The three of us are a team for tomorrow's Jingle all the way 5k in Ashland and I'm looking forward to it. It looks like a great weekend to run a November 5k.

It will be nice knock 10 miles off of a race and compete in a 5k rather than a half marathon. This past weekend I ran and they watched the Kelleys Island Half Marathon. Pictures can be found HERE

I don't think there is anywhere better to run than Kelleys Island. But I'm fresh off of my best time for a half marathon. (I have run a total of two and this is my fastest)

This past weekend's half marathon was part of my 50 miles before the end of the year.

If you have a race you would like me to add to my blog, please e-mail me at werling@sanduskyregister.com. Races are tough to come by in the colder months.
