Weekly walking/running roundup
What I’m doing: I'll be spending Saturday morning churning out the longest of my pre-Philadelphia runs. This will likely be followed by a painful Sunday with as little movement as possible.
Why: With Philadelphia coming up on the 21st, it's time to start tapering down.
What I recommend for others: I really enjoyed last year's Down's Park 5 Miler, as it's a perfect way to view the changing leaves near Gibson Island. I was a big Joe Shafran fan when I worked in Annapolis, so if I feel inclined to get up on Sunday, I'll probably go talk to people at the Joggin' Joe Memorial 5K.

About this list: By default, I make an effort to list all advertised, publicly accessible Maryland running and walking events within the next week. If you want to highlight a race outside of Maryland (or just want to make sure your race is included), please send me an e-mail with the subject line “Race listings.” The message must include a direct link to your race’s webpage, and it must be submitted at least two weeks before the event.
